On March 23 a group of past and present presidents of the Phi Kappa Phi honor’s society at the University of Tennessee at Martin gathered to rededicate its tradition of academic excellence on the UT Martin campus.
On the second floor of the Paul Meek library, a series of plaques and honors now hang on one wall dedicated entirely to the UT Martin Phi Kappa Phi chapter.
“The history of Phi Kappa Phi with this chapter, is within each one of us,” said Anna Clark, instructor of English and Phi Kappa Phi nominating committee chair. “I think anyone that’s had any part of academics on this campus understands what this means to us,” said Dr. Jerald Ogg, vice chancellor for academic affairs.
The National Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi was created in 1897 to encourage superior scholarship and integrity in all academic disciplines. Chapter 127 of Phi Kappa Phi at UT Martin received its charter in 1971.
