Six Presentation College students have been inducted into the South Dakota Zeta Chapter of Pi Gamma Mu, an International Social Science Honor Society, for the fall semester. The new student inductees are Benita Creager, Danette Damman, Rachel Grothe, Katrin Kriener, Brent Rensink, and Amy Turner.

Membership in Pi Gamma Mu is open to qualified undergraduate and graduate students, as well as faculty members.  To qualify for membership, a student must have junior, senior, or graduate standing and have a “B” or better average in at least 20 semester hours of social science classes.

Pi Gamma Mu has over 150 chapters located at colleges and universities in the United States and abroad.  This is the tenth year of the South Dakota Zeta Chapter, which now has ninety lifetime members, including two former Pi Gamma Mu graduate scholarship recipients.  Since Pi Gamma Mu is certified by the Association of College Honor Societies, members can also qualify for a two-level starting pay grade increase if employed by the federal government.  

Dr. Brad Tennant is the faculty sponsor for the Presentation College chapter and serves as the Regional Chancellor for the North/Northwest Region on the Pi Gamma Mu Board of Trustees.
