Christina Conrad, a criminology and sociology double major, received the Phi Kappa Phi medallion for the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences this year.

She also completed a minor in peace studies and violence prevention, as well as national security and foreign affairs.

Conrad has held leadership positions with the Daughters of Isabella service organization and the Girl Scouts of America.

In the spring of 2019 she served as an intern with the Virginia Tech Police Department, and she has interned since May 2019 with the Montgomery County Victim/Witness Assistance Program.

Working with the Commonwealth attorney, she gained knowledge of the court process and counseled individuals as they navigated through the system.

Phi Kappa Phi recognizes and promotes academic excellence in all fields of higher education and engages the community of scholars in service to others. Each year Virginia Tech’s chapter of the society awards a medallion to one graduating senior from each college selected from among those students with the highest academic standing in the college.

Beginning in the fall, Conrad will pursue a master’s degree in social work at George Mason University.
