Congratulations to New Phi Alpha Theta Initiates
On April 16, 2010, the Tau Omega chapter of the Phi Alpha Theta international history honorary, advised by Dr. Sandra Mendiola, inducted five new members: Britney Fore, Whitney Reid, Jesse Thomas, Anthony Howard, and Mary Fleming.
Britney and Whitney were able to attend the ceremony at Dr. Richard Gerberding's Castle, where we all enjoyed good food, beautiful spring weather, and the chance to celebrate the academic achievements of these students. Thomas Reidy, Phi Alpha Theta inductee from 1981, UAH history MA, and current PhD candidate at the University of Alabama-Tuscaloosa, also gave a brief talk about his work on a PBS documentary about civil rights activists Virginia and Clifford Durr.
Pictured here are 1) Britney and Whitney with their certificates, 2) Britney and Whitney with previously-inducted PAT members Samantha Hillgartner (chapter president) and Sarah Fisher, and 3) a group picture of the PAT students with Thomas Reidy and faculty members Richard Gerberding, Andrew Dunar, Stephen Waring, Molly Johnson, and faculty advisor Sandra Mendiola.
Congratulations to the new inductees!
