GLENVILLE, WV - Glenville State College has been granted a chapter of Alpha Phi Sigma, a national criminal justice honor society.
The Gamma Sigma chapter was established in May 2019 with twenty-one initial inductees. The organization is led by Assistant Professors of Criminal Justice Drs. Jeffrey Bryson, Donal Hardin, Kenneth Lang, and Mr. Jason Yeager. As an academic honor society, a minimum overall criminal justice GPA of 3.2 and the equivalent of three semesters of completed credits are required.
“As an academic honor society, Alpha Phi Sigma recognizes academic excellence that our criminal justice students have achieved,” said Bryson. “The criminal justice faculty are proud of their accomplishments. Glenville State College has one of the best groups of students around.”
Alpha Phi Sigma President Jasmine Tarman is optimistic for the new semester. “With APS being a new organization at Glenville State College, one of the biggest things that I am looking forward to is getting the word out about the organization to those in the Criminal Justice pathway that this is an amazing opportunity to strive for and be a part of,” she said. “One of the key things we want to do throughout the year is community service. Those involved in the criminal justice fields are there to help and serve others - which is what our organization is hoping to do as much as we can within the GSC and surrounding communities.”
Founded in 1942, Alpha Phi Sigma is a certified member of the Association of College Honor Societies and affiliated with the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences.
