Apr. 24, 2018 – On Tuesday April 17, as part of the first annual Academic Symposium, 65 Newbury students were inducted into five honor societies. Families, friends, faculty and staff gathered in the Student Center Auditorium to celebrate the academic success of these students.
Dean of Academic Affairs, Dr. Laurie Gordy, began the ceremony. “Individual success has more meaning in a community and thus, we induct students today into the various communities of their honor societies,” said Dr. Gordy. “I ask that you use this honor society membership to continue in your own academic success as well as continue your contributions to enhance the academic success of others here at Newbury College and beyond in the broader society.”
Newbury President, Joseph L. Chillo, then addressed the room: “The induction into an academic honor society is something special. As we celebrate your academic achievement today, I want each of you to continue to strive and to continue to challenge yourselves.”
The faculty advisors for each honor society chapter were invited to the podium to speak on the mission and history of the honor society and read the names of the inductees. For more photos from the ceremony, visit our Facebook page.
