Catawba Alpha Chi chapter a star
Catawba College’s Omicron Chapter of Alpha Chi, the national college honor society, was one of 37 chapters in the nation to earn the society’s Star Chapter designation for the 2009-2010 academic year.
The award honors chapters for meeting several criteria: having a faculty sponsor and a student member at the annual national or regional convention; having a student presenter on the convention program; having a national scholarship or fellowship nominee; sponsoring a campus program with an academic emphasis; registering new members; and filing the annual chapter report.
Catawba’s Omicron Chapter of Alpha Chi was founded in May 1978 with the induction of 13 members. To date, more than 600 members have been inducted. Alpha Chi inducts no more than the top 10 percent of juniors and seniors from all academic fields. Founded in 1922, the society has active chapters at more than 300 colleges and universities in 45 states and Puerto Rico.

Leak serves as page
Traci Leak, a student at Salisbury High School, recently served as a page for the North Carolina House of Representatives.
She is the granddaughter of Joseph and Maggie Blackwell of Salisbury and was sponsored by Rep. Harry Warren (R-Rowan).
Speaker of the House Thom Tillis (R-Mecklenburg) appoints the pages and introduces each one to members and citizens in the House gallery at the start of each week during Monday night’s session.
For decades, the State House has relied on the service of pages, who help deliver bills and amendments for representatives during daily House sessions and committee meetings, offer assistance in individual representatives’ offices and run errands around the legislature.
Pages spend a week at the General Assembly assisting members and their staff and learning about the structure of North Carolina government.

Ministry offersmission opportunitiesto teens
Jonathan Eckmann, Clearview Christian Academy senior, and Hank Dahl traveled to Columbia International University last month to promote Reign Ministries, an organization that offers Christian summer mission trips, discipleship training schools and youth ministry training for students ages 13 to 18.
Dahl is a full-time staff member for Reign Ministries.
They spoke to a freshmen class learning how to develop youth ministries.
Royal Servants, a branch of Reign Ministries, takes middle, high school and college students around the world on summer-long mission trips. During the trips, students develop spiritual disciplines to mature and grow closer to Jesus Christ.
Dahl spoke of the changes he has seen in the lives of students as a leader, while Eckmann shared testimony as a student who went to China through Royal Servants.
They hope the stories of great life changes they shared inspired students to either go on a trip themselves or promote the organization at the churches where they intern.
They also traveled around Columbia and Charleston, speaking to youth pastors and students, building relationships and introducing Reign Ministries.
