Phi Beta Delta named Outstanding Midwest Chapter
Ohio Northern University's Gamma Upsilon Chapter of Phi Beta Delta, the honor society for international scholars, has received the Outstanding Midwest Chapter Award for 2010-2011.
ONU's Gamma Upsilon Chapter also received that award in 2002. The ONU campus coordinator for Phi Beta Delta, Dr. Michael Loughlin, professor of history, was nominated for the national award as one of the outstanding Phi Beta Delta organizers and contributors.
Other Gamma Upsilon officials for Phi Beta Delta include: Dr. Khalid
al-Olimat, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, as president; Dr. Howard Fenton, professor of law, as vice president, Dr. Roseanna Dufault, professor of French, as secretary, and Dr. Suzanne Morrison, associate professor of religion, as treasurer.
The student representative for the last two years has been senior political science major Kelly Morman from Monroeville, Ohio, and the alternate representative is senior international studies major Megan Piersol from Warren, Ohio.
Loughlin hopes to be able to pick up the ONU Gamma Upsilon Chapter Award at the Phi Beta Delta annual conference in Long Beach, Calif. later this month.
