Dixon resident Alyssa Castro named to Phi Kappa Phi honor society at Missouri S&T

DIXON, Mo. (June 20, 2014) — Officials with the honor society of Phi Kappa Phi announced Wednesday that Alyssa Castro of Dixon, a biological sciences student at Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla, was recently initiated into what the organization said is “the nation's oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines.”

Castro, a junior, was previously named to the winter 2014 and spring 2014 honor list at Missouri S&T. According to university officials, students named to the honor list must have carried a minimum of 12 hours and had grade point averages of 3.2 or above out of a possible 4.0.

Phi Kappa Phi was founded in 1897 with chapters on more than 300 college and university campuses in North America and the Philippines. Castro is among approximately 32,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni to be initiated into Phi Kappa Phi each year. Membership is by invitation and requires nomination and approval by a chapter. Only the top 10 percent of seniors and 7.5 percent of juniors, having at least 72 semester hours, are eligible for membership. Graduate students in the top 10 percent of the number of candidates for graduate degrees may also qualify, as do faculty, professional staff, and alumni who have achieved scholarly distinction.
