Delta State University recently honored four new members of the Mississippi Epsilon Chapter of Kappa Mu Epsilon, a specialized honor society in mathematics.
This year’s initiates are students Shawn Sanks, of Foley, Alabama; Kaitlyn Bryant, of Southaven; Bryant McDuffie, of Petal; and Chelsea Townsend, instructor of mathematics.
“It is exciting each year to identify honor students in the Department of Mathematics and to induct them into the honor society of Kappa Mu Epsilon,” said Dr. Clifton Wingard, chair of the department. “We, as a department, are proud of the academic accomplishments of these students and encourage them to continue their educational pursuits in mathematics and related fields.”
Kappa Mu Epsilon was founded in 1931 to promote the interest of mathematics among undergraduate students. Its chapters are located in colleges and universities of recognized standing which offer a strong mathematics major. The chapters’ members are selected from students of mathematics and other closely related fields who have maintained standards of scholarship, have professional merit and have attained academic distinction.
