Pi Sigma Alpha Inducts 25 Members
Alpha Alpha Alpha, the UST chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha, the National Political Science Honor Society, held its tenth induction ceremony and luncheon on Tuesday, April 19.

Twenty-five members were inducted, both undergraduate and graduate students, and are now a part of the highly successful and active organization on campus. Each student has achieved excellence in a minimum of 15 hours in political science courses.

The new members stood before faculty, friends, and family as they participated in the initiation ritual. The ritual reminds inductees of their connection to the national organization of Pi Sigma Alpha and to the other chapters of the honor society, and to political science scholars who have gone before them and those who will follow.

Sitting from left to right: Leticia Gordillo, Sashikala Nisankarao (current secretary), Teniola Adeyemi, Maryam Shahnazi, Alan Llanas, Laura Diaz (current vice-president), Brandi English, and James Loukanis.

Standing from left to right: Dr. Jon Taylor, Dr. John Burke, Edward Lacy, Clinton Kuykendall, James Bjacek, Brien O’Donal, Ronnie Piper, Amanda Duhon, Tyler Rountree (incoming president), Damien Treshman, Christopher Dupree (current president), and Dr. Jean-Philippe Faletta.
