27th Annual Honors Convocation set for April 14

The Penn State Greater Allegheny Honors Program is designed for students to demonstrate academic excellence, to build global perspectives, to research important issues of content and to seek opportunities for leadership and civic engagement. More than 100 Greater Allegheny students will receive awards for academic achievement and service to the campus at this year?s 27th annual Honors Convocation, to be held at 7 p.m. on April 14, in the Wunderley Gymnasium on campus.

Each year, scholarships are awarded in a number of categories, such as academic achievement, honors and scholars, National Honor Society in Psychology, Psi Chi, and the Chancellor?s Literary Awards, which are selected by the Chancellor to represent the best from among the literary and visual arts produced at the campus by either full or part-time students.

Other named scholarships and campus awards cover a broad range of criteria for each respective honor, such as the John W. Beatty Memorial Scholarship, Kalich Family Student Leadership Award, and the Rhodes Student Leadership Award, which recognizes academic achievement and community service by an undergraduate student at Greater Allegheny.

Greater Allegheny immeasurably benefits from the quality of the honor students? participation in the campus? academic experience and their dedication to academic research, service, and exposition.
