8 UW at Casper honor socitety members inducted into the Round Table Honor Society

(Casper, Wyo.) - The Round Table Honor Society, an organization comprised of honor students at the University of Wyoming at Casper (UW-Casper), recently held a recognition ceremony for the 2016 inductees. Certificates were presented to eight new members. The honors were bestowed upon the inductees by the Round Table’s faculty adviser, Florence Teulé-Finley, and officers: President Alexis Pencak, Vice-president Cathryn Christie, Secretary Faith Ediger, Treasurer Jacob Kountz, and Public Relations Officer Michelle Sherwin. Round Table Honor Society members must maintain a 3.3 grade point average, while taking six or more credits per semester at UW-Casper. As members, they participated in fundraising and community service events throughout the year: they raised $180 for the Youth for Christ Center in Casper during the fall, and will hold their spring fundraiser for Casper Autism Support Group at Buffalo Wild Wings on April 27 from 4-9 pm. The student group performed community service through Habitat for Humanity and the Wyoming Food for Thought Project. “For Habitat for Humanity, we helped build a home,” explained Sherwin. “The family that would live in the home was there building with us. We helped in any way we could; some of us were up on the roof. We learned different skills, and it was wonderful to see the community working together that way. Then when we packed food for Wyoming Food for Thought, I was surprised by how much food had been donated. We weighed and sorted food that would be given to more than 300 students during weekends and breaks.” Inductees into the honor society included: - Tianna Aikey - Frederick Bergh - Bethany Colyar - Mona Corr - Julie Judd - Jason Matzen - Bailee Schnell - Jessica Snyder Congrats to the inductees!
