COLCHESTER, Vt. — Lauren Fereshetian, daughter of Albert and Tammy Fereshetian of Turner, was inducted into the Saint Michael’s College chapter of the national honor society Phi Beta Kappa in ceremonies held April 9 on the college campus. Fereshetian graduated from Leavitt Area High School before coming to Saint Michael’s.
A senior education and sociology major, Fereshetian is one of 48 Saint Michael’s students to be inducted with college officials, faculty, new members and parents of inductees present.
Dedicated to promoting excellence in the liberal arts, Phi Beta Kappa chapters are allowed to elect a maximum of 10 percent of their institution’s graduating class to join each year. Fewer than one percent of college graduates nationwide are admitted, and fewer than 10 percent of colleges and universities are privileged to have Phi Beta Kappa chapters on their campuses.
