BERKELEY COLLEGE INDUCTS SOUTHERN QUEENS STUDENTS
INTO NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETIES

 

Students from the southern sections of Queens, NY, have been inducted into national honor societies at Berkeley College. 

“Congratulations to the Berkeley College students who have been inducted into national honor societies,” said Dario A. Cortes, PhD, President of Berkeley College. “Membership is a mark of excellence that not only recognizes academic achievement, but also positions these students competitively as leaders in their chosen professions.” 

The following students from Queens were inducted: 

- Brittany Forde of Ozone Park, Phi Theta Kappa
- Shanjida Hossain of Jamaica, Alpha Sigma Lambda
- Steven Ascenio of Richmond Hill, Phi Theta Kappa
- Brian Parmanand of South Richmond Hill, Phi Theta Kappa
- John Gamble of Woodhaven, Phi Theta Kappa

The Alpha Sigma Lambda National Honor Society was founded in 1945 to honor dedicated adult and non-traditional students who handle their life responsibilities while achieving and maintaining a high level of academic success. To qualify, students must have a grade point average of 3.2 or higher and must rank in the top 20 percent of their class. 

The Phi Theta Kappa National Honor Society was established in 1918 to honor the academic achievement of students pursuing two-year degrees. To qualify, students must have a grade point average of 3.5 or higher.
