VALDOSTA — Kirshana Marie Calhoun of Ludowici has been inducted into the Georgia Alpha Chapter of Alpha Chi at Valdosta State University.
Alpha Chi is a coeducational academic honor society. Since 1922 it has promoted academics and character among college and university students, and to honor those who achieve such distinction.
Membership is by invitation and is limited to the top 10 percent of an institution’s juniors, seniors and graduate students.
Alpha Chi’s name is derived from the initial letters of the Greek words “aletheia,” meaning “truth,” and “xapakthp,” meaning “character.”
Valdosta State was the first institution of higher education to establish an Alpha Chi chapter in the state of Georgia.
