Iota Sigma Pi Chemistry Honor Society Inducts New Members

Published: May 11, 2017.

Seven Lewis University Chemistry students were inducted this year into Iota Sigma Pi, a national honor society for women in chemistry. Iota Sigma Pi promotes the advancement of women in chemistry by granting recognition to women who have demonstrated superior scholastic achievement and high professional competence.

New initiates include Kristine Countryman of Plainfield, Hafsa Khan of Bolingbrook, Maria Salinas of Cicero, Fiona Byrne of Palos Heights, Jessica Tabert of Downers Grove, Katherine Wortman-Otto of Minneapolis, Minn., and Katelyn Lanasky of Plainfield.

Students with at least four semesters of chemistry are eligible for induction. A cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better is required and for those with only four semesters of chemistry, a 3.5 GPA in chemistry is required. If more than four semesters have been taken, the in-field GPA requirement is 3.0.

Iota Sigma Pi currently has more than 10,000 members in 40 local chapters at various colleges, universities and metropolitan areas. The organization works to promote interest in chemistry among women students; to foster mutual advancement in academic, business and social life; and to stimulate personal accomplishments in chemical fields.
