Honor Society Inducts New Members
The Round Table Honor Society, an organization comprised of honor students at the University of Wyoming/Casper College (UW/CC) Center, recently held a candle-lighting ceremony for the 2009 inductees.
Society pins and certificates were presented to 24 new members, followed by the traditional lighting of the students' candles. The honors were bestowed upon the inductees by Round Table officers President Arrin Welch, Vice President Janie Woolson and Treasurer Kymberly Kirkham, all of Casper, and Secretary Necole Rush of Thermopolis.
Inductees into the honor society were Kimberly Amador, Cynthia Antrim, Cynthia Brachtenbach, Kylie Burch, Rachael Cestnik, Rebecca Conger, Manford Hurley, Leah Johnson, Elisa Jones, Damian Lara, Amy Moyte, Midge Payette, John (Mike) Raehal, Kristin Rothaupt, Kelly Russell, Megan Russell, Kellie Sabo, Hannah Schirlinger, Scott Stinson, Debra Womack, and Philip Zaharas, all of Casper; Chelsey Kiefat of Wright; Heather Pauline of Glenrock and Megan Smith of Laramie.
More than 60 people attended the ceremony and reception at the UW Outreach Building.
"I'm proud of the students' academic achievements, as well as their desire to give back to the community at the same time they are going to school," says Carol Tarantola, faculty adviser and senior lecturer of communication at the UW/CC Center.
Round Table Honor Society members must maintain a 3.3 grade point average while taking six or more credits per semester at the UW/CC Center. As members they participate in many fundraising and community service events, such as Bowling for Jason's Friends, serving at the Casper Rescue Mission and collecting goods and funds for Seton House and the Department of Family Services.
