On March 20th, 2013, 4 members of the VCSU Psi Beta chapter of the Phi Alpha Theta history club were inducted as members of National Phi Alpha Theta. Sarah Silvernail (Lisbon, N.D.), Dustin Slaamod (Park River, N.D.), Allison Veselka (Tower City, N.D.), and Scott Westby (Sheyenne, N.D.) were all inducted after achieving a cumulative 3.0 GPA in college courses and a 3.1 GPA in at least 12 history credits.
The ceremony, held at the President's House Guest Inn on campus, included a dinner prepared by history professors Dr. Steven King and Prof. Anthony Dutton. A short reading and induction process followed.
Each of the four inductees are history or social science education majors, and three (Slaamod--V.P., Veselka--secretary/treasurer, and Westby--President) are officers of the Psi Beta chapter. The four members have now attained a lifetime membership into the national honor society. Congrats to all inducted!
