Northwest psychology honor society named a Model Chapter

Northwest Missouri State University’s chapter of the Psi Chi international honor society in psychology has been designated a Psi Chi Model Chapter for 2017-18.

The Northwest chapter was one of 41 chapters to achieve Model Chapter status this year and one of 14 chapters to achieve the status in the Midwestern region.

In recognition of meeting the criteria for the award, Northwest’s Psi Chi chapter receives $100 and a certificate. The award also makes the Northwest chapter eligible for Psi Chi’s 2018-19 regional chapter awards as well as faculty advisor awards.

The Northwest chapter’s student leadership consists of Cameron Morrison, president; Haley Tilsworth, vice president; Ashley Hastert, treasurer; and Hannah Johnson, secretary. Psychology faculty Dr. Jerrold Barnett and Dr. Keely Cline are advisors.

“It’s a true reflection of the efforts and excellence of the Psi Chi student board and members as well as our faculty sponsors, Dr. Cline and Dr. Barnett,” Dr. Terry Long, the director of Northwest’s School of Health Science and Wellness, said.

Psi Chi’s mission is to encourage, stimulate and maintain excellence in scholarship while advancing the science of psychology. Membership is open to graduate and undergraduate students who major or minor in psychology and meet minimal requirements.
