KEENE, N.H.--The Keene State College Department of Athletics and Recreation is pleased to announce the 31 student-athletes who have been selected for induction into the Theta chapter of Chi Alpha Sigma, the National College Athlete Honor Society.
The National College Athlete Honor Society was founded at DePauw University, Greencastle, Indiana, on May 17, 1996, by DePauw head football coach and professor of kinesiology, Nick Mourouzis. Mourouzis recognized that there were many organizations that honored top or elite athletes with high academic achievements, but none that honored all participants of athletic teams who were letter winners of their sport and who maintained a high cumulative grade point average. Chi Alpha Sigma hopes to bring honor and recognition to deserving student-athletes, their families, teams, athletic departments, and colleges in much the same way as Phi Beta Kappa honors scholastics.
Criterion for induction include:
- Must attend a four-year accredited college or university that is a member of the NCAA or NAIA
- Must have earned a letter in a varsity intercollegiate sport sponsored by the NCAA or the NAIA.
- Must have achieved at least junior academic standing by the fifth semester or seventh quarter as determined by the certifying institution.
- Must have achieved a minimum cumulative 3.4 (on a 4.0 scale) or equivalent grade point average by the time of the selection process. Local chapters may require a higher minimum cumulative grade point average, if they choose.
- Must be of good moral character.
The ceremony will take place on Monday, April 2, at 3 p.m. in Centennial Hall in the Alumni Center. Brief refreshments will follow. The ceremony is free of charge and online registration can be completed here. Please direct questions to Assistant Athletic Director Abe Osheyack at Abe.Osheyack@keene.edu or 603-358-2630.
