Glenville, WV – A chapter of the national music honor society Pi Kappa Lambda (PKL) has been established at Glenville State College. PKL is an exclusive organization that recognizes and encourages the highest level of musical achievement and academic scholarship. Members of PKL are nominated and elected through a rigorous screening process.
“This society honors excellence in both school work and musical achievement. I want to see students step up to meet the challenge of being inducted into PKL. It is truly an honor,” said GSC Assistant Professor of Music Teresa Dody, who is a member herself and has organized the founding of the GSC chapter of PKL.
Student eligibility is first determined by musical achievements, talent and zeal; then academic standing is taken into consideration. Juniors must be in the top ten percent of their class, and seniors must be in the top twenty percent of their class. Alumni may also be selected for their achievements since leaving GSC.
The GSC Department of Fine Arts faculty members have all been inducted into Pi Kappa Lambda and serve as the founding members of the GSC chapter. They hope to add up to two students and/or alumni a year as the program progresses.
