Southeast Faculty Member Attends Phi Kappa Phi Triennial Convention

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., Oct. 29, 2004 — Dr. Anne Marietta, assistant professor of human environmental studies at Southeast Missouri State University, was among 200 delegates, observers, guests, board members and national office staff to attend the 2004 Phi Kappa Alpha Triennial Convention in Albuquerque, N.M. in August.

Marietta is a member of the Southeast Missouri State University chapter of Phi Kappa Phi and was inducted into the society in 1993.

Those attending the convention listened to presentations by award winners from Phi Kappa Phi’s grant programs, shared ideas and inspiration at chapter training sessions, conducted the society’s business, elected a new board of directors and experienced some of the flavor of the American Southwest.

Headquartered on the Louisiana State University campus in Baton Rouge, La., Phi Kappa Phi is an international honor society for academic distinction that brings together individuals from a variety of disciplines. The charter is only extended to colleges and universities meeting rigorous standards. Southeast first chartered its Phi Kappa Phi chapter in 1992. The society is open to men and women in all academic fields who have demonstrated excellence of scholarship and integrity of character.
