A Coushatta college student has been inducted into Northwestern State University’s Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society. She is Caroline G. Doughty, daughter of Larkin Doughty and Ann Hester. She is pictured above with Dr. McAlister, Dean of the NSU Education Department and Dr. Ron McBride, professor of Education Technology and coordinator of the graduation program for education technology.
Doughty told the Journal “Phi Kappa Phi recognizes excellence in academic success. Only the top 10% of college seniors get this award.”
Doughty graduates next week from NSU in elementary education. She said “I will be certified to teach grades one through five. I have applied to Red River and surrounding parishes for a teaching position.” Doughty said she would like to teach close to home.
Phi Kappa Phi is the nation’s oldest, largest and most selective all-discipline honor society. Its mission is to recognize and promote academic excellence in all fields of higher education and engage the community of scholars in service to others. This years inductees are pictured below.
