Students Inducted into Edward Alexander Bouchet Graduate Honor Society
April 3, 2017
Three graduate students from the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences were inducted into the Virginia Tech chapter of the Edward Alexander Bouchet Graduate Honor Society. Recognized with membership were: Adrien DeLoach, Higher Education; Jordan Laney, ASPECT; and Jennifer Turner, Sociology.
The society was established in 2005 and named for the first African-American to earn a doctoral degree in the United States; it “seeks to develop a network of scholars who exemplify academic and personal excellence, foster environments of support, and serve as examples of scholarship, leadership, character, service, and advocacy for students who have been traditionally underrepresented in the academy – exemplifying the spirit and example of Dr. Bouchet.” Virginia Tech is one of 13 Bouchet Society chapter institutions.
