The Rutledge Honorary History Club elected its officers for 2011-2012 and initiated six new members at a spring meeting held on April 13, 2011. Club President Elizabeth Blevins presided at the event. The first order of business was the election of officers. Those chosen were: David Conway, president; Mary Ellen Poe, vice president; Savannah German, secretary; Will Miller, senator; and Lori Landon, senator. President Elizabeth then conducted an initiation ceremony, which involved the following students: Kaley Humphrey, Lori Landon, Allen Matthews, Raven Richardson, Charles Snow, and Kati Warburton. Each new member received a certificate of membership. Dr. Terry Lindley, the club’s faculty sponsor, concluded the meeting by reminding attendees of the club-sponsored History Department Awards Banquet on Thursday, May 5, 2011.
