Chisolm inducted into Phi Beta Kappa
Ashlyn Chisolm of Madison has been inducted into the Gamma of Mississippi Chapter of The Phi Beta Kappa at Mississippi State University.
Chisolm is a junior at Mississippi State University, majoring in psychology. She is the youngest daughter of Allen and Leah (Turcotte) Chisolm. She is also the granddaughter of Ernest C. Turcotte, Jr, the late Mrs. Eleanor J. Turcotte, of Clinton, and Billy and Sue Chisolm of Flora.
Phi Beta Kappa inductees are among the top 10% of their graduating class who have completed a broad range of liberal arts and sciences coursework, including foreign language and mathematics. Honored this spring with an induction ceremony and dinner sponsored by MSU’s Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President, the 42 students were selected for their extraordinary academic achievement in the arts and sciences. The Phi Beta Kappa Society was founded in 1776 and is the nation’s most prestigious academic honor society. Mississippi State is among just 10% of U.S. colleges and universities granted PDK chapters. Noteworthy members include 17 U.S. presidents, 42 U.S. Supreme Court justices and more than 150 Nobel laureates.
