The APSU chapter of Psi Chi psychology honorary has been chosen to receive the Southeastern Regional Chapter Award.

Although there are six regions nationwide, the local chapter competed against colleges and universities with more than 5,000 students within the Southeast region. The annual award recognizes the regional chapters that best achieve Psi Chi's purpose: “to encourage, stimulate and maintain excellence in scholarship of the individual members in all fields, particularly in psychology, and to advance the science of psychology.”

APSU's chapter received a check for $500 and a certificate. The chapter also will be included in an upcoming edition of “Eye on Psi Chi” magazine. Receiving this award makes the APSU group eligible for next year's National Chapter Award.

In a letter to members, Emily Averitt, past president of Psi Chi at APSU, said, “This is an incredible honor, and all of our members should take pride in knowing that our chapter is now a role model, not only for other chapters in our region, but for chapters throughout the country.
