Honor Society Inducts New Members at Recent Ceremony
May 13, 2010 — The Round Table Honor Society, an organization comprised of honor students at the University of Wyoming/Casper College (UW/CC) Center, inducted 15 new members during a recent candle-lighting ceremony.
Society pins and certificates were presented to the new members, followed by the traditional lighting of the students' candles. The honors were bestowed upon the inductees by the Round Table's officers: President Mance Hurley, Vice President Rachael Cestnik, Secretary Kristin Rothaupt and Treasurer Midge Payette.
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, assisting Wyoming CARES with the Mommy and Me Tea and collecting goods and funds for various local agencies.
"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," said Carol Tarantola, faculty adviser and senior lecturer of communication at the UW/CC Center. "All the family and friends that came to share the students' honor - it's always nice to have a public place where family can applaud the students' efforts."
Inductees into the honor society were Krysti Bateman, Monique Peterson-Bown, Kayleigh Corbett, Elizabeth Fauber, Daniel Gallegos, Tammi Hanshaw, Jennifer Harshman, Robert Hill, Amanda Immel, Tanya Meek, Cary Ritterhouse, Gillian Smathers, Courtney Thomas, Danica Musgrave-Sveda and Steven Woodward.
