A History of Honors: The 2021 Phi Alpha Theta Awards and Induction Ceremony
Students and professors excited for a zoom meeting at the end of the school year? What mystical event could get them all so excited? Easy! The 2021 Phi Alpha Theta awards and induction ceremony! Such a joyous event involving the commemoration of some of the departments best and brightest in Sarah Johns, Caroline Bormann, Matt Furgele, and Amanda Pawling.
Filling in the shoes of these historical giants won’t be easy, but the new band of inductees to Phi Alpha Theta are going to give it their best shot! Congratulations to Neva Mcgowan, Andrew Moore, Jake Ross, Justin Mitchell, Elizabeth Elliot, Katie Sanfield, and Solomon Griffith. They are positive that they’ll do the officers of the not so distant past proud! Neva Mcgowan was elected President, no one else has the guts to make the hard calls like her. Andrew Moore was elected Vice-President; he promises to nod resolutely after Neva makes a hard call. Katie Sanfield is the Administrator, Elizabeth Elliot is the Treasurer, and Jake Ross is the Historian. Both Solomon Griffith and Justin Mitchell are astutely providing their keen intellect and advice, the new officers are already hatching plans.
The passing of the torch can be a bittersweet event. As exciting as welcoming new inductees into Phi Alpha Theta is, it’s undeniably sad that our previous officers are graduating. They are some of the smartest and kindest people anyone in the department had had the honor of knowing, we all know they will do stellar things. So, another round of congratulations to our graduating officers: Sarah Johns, Caroline Bormann, Matt Furgele, and Amanda Pawling.
