SELINSGROVE — Diana Crowley, of South Abington Township, was recently inducted into two honor societies at Susquehanna University: the Pi Delta Phi French honor society and the Phi Sigma Iota honor society.
Pi Delta Phi was founded as a departmental honor society at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1906. The departmental society declared itself a National French Honor Society at the University of Southern California in 1925. Pi Delta Phi’s mission is to recognize outstanding scholarship in the French language and its literatures, and to stimulate and encourage French and francophone cultural activities.
Phi Sigma Iota is the international foreign language honor society for outstanding students in a classical or modern language. It selects only students in the top 35 percent of their class, as well as faculty who have contributed substantially to the foreign languages, literatures and cultures. Students must also have received distinguished grades in upper division courses of a foreign language or literature.
Crowley is a biology major in the Class of 2016. A 2012 graduate of Abington Heights High School, she is the daughter of Trip and Michele Crowley.
