Hartsville, SC (Vocus) November 3, 2010
Coker College is pleased to announce the addition of a chapter of the Phi Alpha Honor Society for social work students to the Coker campus. The Coker chapter will be called Rho Theta.
The founding members of the chapter are Amy Davis, Rachel Brock, Jane McCullough, Carl Goodson and Anna Townsend; with faculty advisor Dr. Jeanne Cook. As members of Rho Theta students must meet the following criteria:
- Declared Social Work as a major
- Achieved sophomore status
- Completed nine semester hours of social work course work
- Achieved an overall GPA of 3.0
- Achieved a 3.25 GPA in required social work courses
In addition to the regular induction of members each year, Rho Theta will also be able to select two honorary inductees. These individuals may be from outside program, but have made significant contributions to the program or society.
“We are pleased to join the national social work honor society,” said Cook. “This provides another means through which our academically talented social work majors can be recognized.”
Rho Theta becomes the ninth honor society on Coker’s campus and the first to represent the social work department.
