SHREVEPORT, LA -- The Centenary chapter of Psi Chi, the national honor society in psychology, has inducted five new members.

They are Adam Blancher of Mobile, Ala.; Erin Bryan of Shreveport, La.; Jennifer Jackson of Shreveport; Michelle Long of Keatchie, La., and Emily Pinnix of Shreveport. They have become members of one of the largest and most successful honor societies in the world, with over 930 chapters throughout the United States.

Psi Chi is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies and is an affiliate of the American Psychological Association (APA). Members are psychology majors or minors with an overall cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 and who rank in the upper 35 percent of their class.

The honor society was founded in 1929 to encourage, stimulate, and maintain excellence in scholarship, and advance the science of psychology. Membership is awarded to graduate and undergraduate men and women who are making the study of psychology one of their major interests and who meet the qualifications.

The Psi Chi faculty advisor at Centenary is Dr. Joyce Johnson.
