Honor societies induct record number
of students

by Kalamalama staff


HPU students with outstanding academic records were recognized at the Honor Societies’ Fall 2002 Induction, held Nov. 3 at the Hale Koa Hotel in Waikiki. Nearly 400 students were accepted for membership in one or more of the 11 HPU honor societies participating, setting a new record for fall semester induction.

The keynote speech was given by HPU Chaplain Rev. Dr. Dale Burke, winner of this year’s Trustee’s Award for Teacher of the Year. After praising the accomplishments of the students to be inducted, Reverend Burke stated that “the sign of a great university is the accomplishments of its graduates.”

“That means,” he continued, “that HPU is not yet a great university. It’s too young. It’s only 37 years old.

“Give us another 20 years.”

He went on to explain that if we are going to make a difference in the world, it depends on how we live, how we care for the less fortunate, and what causes we fight for. If he could, he would inspire us all to “always give to the world your best self!”

After the speech and brunch, students were inducted into each of the 11 honor socieities present. Students were selected based on their outstanding academic achievements in several fields of study, including business administration, computer science, communication, history, human resources, marketing, political science, nursing, the biological sciences, social work, and athletics.

All of HPU’s honor societies promote fellowship, scholarship, and achievement for members through ongoing social, academic, and professional activities. Following is a list of students inducted:
