The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi's international community is a unique blend of students, academicians, and corporate and civic leaders from all fields of endeavor. Membership in Phi Kappa Phi recognizes and rewards academic success. That recognition doesn’t end after initiation. From their time in school to their professional career, Society members’ hard work continues to pay off and be acknowledged.

Phi Kappa Phi would like to congratulate these members on their recent achievements:

Charlotte Hinger (Fort Hays State University) was inducted into the Colorado Authors Hall of Fame. Hinger has published both fiction and nonfiction primarily focused on the Western experience with an emphasis on the Black experience in the historical West.

Audrey Cielinski Kessler (The University of Texas at Austin) has been elected the vice chair of the Portage County Board of Building Appeals in Portage, Ohio.

Tanzilya Oren (Fordham University) was awarded the 2021 Community Partnership Action Award by the Council on Social Work Education. The award is given to honor the contributions of schools and departments of social work and social work students in advancing community partnership action.
