History program initiates five students into honor society
Five students were inducted into Texas Wesleyan's Omega Zeta Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta at a morning ceremony May 2.
Phi Alph Theta is an international honor society for undergraduate and graduate students and professors of history. The Omega Zeta Chapter was chartered at Texas Wesleyan in 1969. The society currently has more than 350,000 members, with about 9,500 new members joining each year through 860 local chapters.
Lifetime membership is based on high standards of academic performance in history courses. Inductees will receive a subscription to the Phi Alpha Theta Journal, The Historian and receive the PAT Newsletter. The society also offers a number of scholarships for graduate study and encourages member participation in the national as well as regional conferences such as the Phi Alpha Theta National Conference, to be held in San Antonio in January 2020.
Students inducted include:
- Christopher Campbell
- Michael Craft
- Emily Hunt

Students in Phi Alpha Theta have the opportunity to present their own research at national and regional conferences. More information about Phi Alpha Theta can be found on Texas Wesleyan University's history program website.
