The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi recently announced that Claire Cook, Janet Morrison and Kayleigh Todd of Austin, Texas, were recently initiated into Phi Kappa Phi — the nation's oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines. Cook and Todd are each pursuing a master's degree in Nursing and Morrison a doctoral degree at The University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing.

The three are among approximately 30,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni to be initiated into Phi Kappa Phi each year. Membership is by invitation and requires nomination and approval by a chapter. Only the top 10 percent of seniors and 7.5 percent of juniors, having at least 72 semester hours, are eligible for membership. Graduate students in the top 10 percent of the number of candidates for graduate degrees may also qualify, as do faculty, professional staff, and alumni who have achieved scholarly distinction.

Congratulations to Claire Cook, Janet Morrison and Kayleigh Todd!
