Anaid Shaver and Johnny Woods, Jr., Inducted into Edward Alexander Bouchet Graduate Honor Society
April 1, 2022
Two graduate students from the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences were among five Virginia Tech students selected for induction into the Edward Alexander Bouchet Graduate Honor Society in 2022: Anaid Shaver, Counselor Education, and Johnny Woods, Jr., Higher Education. 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 16 Bouchet Society chapter institutions. The 2022 Bouchet Graduate Honor Society Scholars were recognized at a reception on campus on March 23; they will be inducted in April via a virtual ceremony originating at Yale University.
