TU students present at Alpha Chi National Convention
Three students from Thomas University’s Chapter of Alpha Chi, Georgia Lambda, presented papers at the Alpha Chi National Convention in St. Louis, Missouri on March 27-29.
Anna Layne Gass, a Psychology major, presented the results of her study “Racial Differences in Perception of Viewing and Funeral Behaviors” as part of the “Research & Creativity Forum.” Carina Spengler, a Business Administration major, presented “Quality and Its Successful Management” in the session on Business Administration, and Daniel Todd Spear, a Humanities major, presented “Literary Fiction in a Web 2.0 World” in a session on American Literature.
Dr. Bonnie Woodbery, co-sponsor of TU’s chapter of Alpha Chi, accompanied the student presenters to the convention.
“I am so proud of Anna, Carina, and Todd for delivering exceptional presentations in a highly competitive environment with over 300 students presenting papers,” Woodbery said.
Alpha Chi is a National College Honor Society that admits students from all academic disciplines who are in the top ten percent of an institution’s juniors and seniors. Invitation to membership comes only through an institutional chapter. Some 300 chapters located across the United States and Puerto Rico induct more than 12,000 members annually.
