Students Named to College's Chapter of Mortar Board

Posted April 10, 2002

HOLLAND -- Forty Hope College juniors have been elected into Mortar Board, a national honor society that recognizes students for scholarship, leadership and service.

The formal initiation ceremony will be held on Sunday, April 14, at 2 p.m. in the Maas Center auditorium. New members will also be honored during the college's annual Honors Convocation on Thursday, April 25, at 7 p.m. in Dimnent Memorial Chapel. The public is invited.

The Hope College Alcor Chapter of Mortar Board carries out many service projects and events on Hope's campus and in the Holland community. In recent years, the group's activities have included the "Wearing of the Blue" breakfast for Dean's List students; mathematics and reading tutoring; a Thanksgiving dinner for international students; "Teach for America" pen pals; sponsoring a "Compassion Child" from Ethiopia; and helping at the Holland Rescue Mission and Center for Women in Transition. The chapter also presents the "Hope Outstanding Professor Educator" (H.O.P.E.) Award during the college's Honors Convocation each year.

The college's chapter is part of a national network that includes 208 chapters, 33 alumni chapters and 25 sections. Since the organization's founding in 1918, more than 200,000 college seniors have been initiated into the society.

The Hope chapter's advisors are Dr. Joseph LaPorte, assistant professor of philosophy, and Dr. Dianne Portfleet, adjunct assistant professor of English.
