Mercyhurst establishes service honor society

In an effort to recognize graduating seniors who exemplify the college’s mission of "service to others," the Office of the President has established the new Mercyhurst College Service Honor Society.

"We believe honoring our student servants is consonant with the mission of Mercyhurst and an important part of honoring the legacy of the Sisters of Mercy," said college President Dr. Thomas J. Gamble in announcing the new society.

The first induction ceremony is scheduled for early May. Then, at commencement, the inductees will wear the society’s honor cord with their academic attire and be recognized as part of graduation awards events.

According to Vice President of Strategic Planning Dr. Heidi Hosey, who is coordinating the service honor society committee, prospective members must demonstrate the following: Significant and sustained service to the college or community at large; marked achievement in leadership; meritorious academic accomplishment; and integrity and commitment to excellence.

To be eligible, an individual must: Be a full-time undergraduate student; a senior certified to graduate in the current academic year; hold a GPA of 2.75 or higher by the end of the winter term induction year; be recommended through an official nomination form (students can be nominated by others or nominate themselves); and complete all materials requested by the society’s selection committee.
