History Honor Society Wins Third-Straight Phi Alpha Theta Award

Oct 14, 2005 - Union’s Delta-Psi Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta (History Honor Society, Inc.) recently won its third-straight Best Chapter Award for Division I schools, i.e., institutions with less than 3,000 students. In his letter of congratulation, Dr. Graydon (Jack) Tunstall, Phi Alpha Theta’s executive director, expressed appreciation for “the tremendous time and effort required to maintain the high level of activity” that Union’s chapter exhibited. He added that “the Delta-Psi chapter is an invaluable asset to Phi Alpha Theta.” Heather Tobe, the Delta-Psi Chapter president in 2004-2005, provided the leadership that brought the society its latest success. The chapter celebrated its achievement with a pizza party at Dr. Stephen Carls’s home on October 13.
