Scholars Inducted in Athletic Honor Society By Laura Nelson on 04/24/2013 Goodwell, Okla.—Six Oklahoma Panhandle State University student athletes were inducted into Chi Alpha Sigma last week and eight prior inductees received red honor cords to wear at commencement to denote their achievement.
The honor society was founded in 1996 by Nick Mourouzis at DePauw University to recognize NCAA and NAIA collegiate athletes who have met rigorous academic standards and lettered in a sport plus have the endorsement of his or her head coach and has been recommended by the school's chapter advisor.
The 2013 honorees include Meagan Bell and Whitley Coca, women's basketball; Jessica DeBaun, volleyball; Seth Jones, men's golf; Cristina Kent, women's cross country; and Emily Vasquez, women's cross country and softball. Past inductees receiving honor cords were Tyler Bennett; Trent Combs; Breanna Drayer; Michelle Kent; Jared Pecore; Brittany Sciacca; Monica Soukup; and Brandon Tripp. The athletes, their coaches and academic advisors and other special guests celebrated the achievements during a banquet and special ceremony.
Congratulations to these fine scholars for their accomplishments!
