On April 15, six Mercer Law students were inducted into The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi. Third-year students Hannah Couch, Ebony Hayes, Jessica Haygood, Michael Hibdon, William Platt IV, and Krysta Tate were selected to join one of the most recognized honor societies in the country and were recognized for their excellence in scholarship and distinguished achievement in all academic fields, including graduate studies.
Membership is by invitation only, by an established campus chapter, and is restricted to students with integrity and high ethical standards and who are ranked scholastically in the top of their class. Phi Kappa Phi was formed in 1897, with Mercer’s chapter being founded in 1980, and now has more than 300 chapters nationally. It is the third academic society in the United States to be organized around recognizing academic excellence, and is the oldest all-discipline honor society.
