BPC’s Pi Gamma Mu recognized with national excellence award

MOUNT VERNON – Brewton-Parker College’s chapter of Pi Gamma Mu, an international honor society in social sciences, was recently recognized with a 2008-2009 national award of excellence, the Roll of Merit, reports chapter advisor Prof. Vance Rhoades.


Rhoades facilitates the Mount Vernon campus membership, and Dr. Susan Kinsella, the Liberty County Campus membership. The award was announced during the Pi Gamma Mu Board of Trustees meeting at the national headquarters in Winnfield, Kansas.


The Roll of Merit focuses on the “activity and effectiveness of the chapter on its campus… including chapter organization and participation by faculty and students, election and initiation of members and financial responsibility. Local initiative in developing new activities or methods of operation is especially noted.”


Brewton-Parker College is one of eight chapters in the international organization to receive this recognition this year.
