Last Friday, April 25th, Illinois College hosted its 4th annual Celebration of Excellence. The celebration highlighted the outstanding work which IC students and faculty produced over the last academic year. Schewe Library hosted a number of talks throughout the day, and each was filled to capacity. It’s events like these that really bring out the spirit of the College!
Though Schewe extends its congratulations to all students and faculty in the celebration, we’re particularly proud of two of our student workers — Sovit Chalise and Kelly McCormick — who were inducted into the prestigious Phi Beta Kappa Society. For those unaware, Phi Beta Kappa is an honors society which admits only the brightest and most accomplished science & liberal arts students into its ranks. It is also the oldest such society in the United States. A piece of Library trivia: our own Reference Librarian/Associate Professor, Mike Westbrook, was once nominated for induction into the society; the nomination, however, was subsequently withdrawn. Could it be that Mike’s unimpeachable character, was, in fact, impeachable??? Mike remains impishly silent on the issue… 🙂
