Alpha Chi honors Geneva student

Lauren HolmesGeneva College music education major Lauren Holmes is among a select group of 26 members of Alpha Chi across the nation to receive one of the organization’s national fellowships and scholarships for the 2012-13 academic year. She was awarded the Alfred H. Nolle Scholarship.

Only 10 Alfred H. Nolle Scholarships, worth $1,500 each, are awarded per year. Recipients of this award must be full-time undergraduate students who exemplify academic excellence. The Alfred H. Nolle Scholarship is named for one of Alpha Chi's pioneers, Dr. Alfred Nolle, who served as the organization’s secretary-treasurer for 41 years.

Alpha Chi is a national college honors society that admits students from all disciplines. There are now some 300 active chapters in almost every state. The local Lambda chapter inducts juniors and seniors with a GPA in the top 10% of their class. A student’s character, in addition to grades, is taken into consideration at the time of acceptance. Alpha Chi's name is formed from the initial letters of the Greek words ALETHEIA, meaning “truth,” and XAPAKTHP, meaning “character.” The organization’s motto is taken from John 8:32, “You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”

Geneva College is a comprehensive Christian college of the arts, sciences and professional studies. Founded in the tradition of the Reformed Christian faith, Geneva prepares students to serve Christ in all areas of society: work, family and the church. Geneva College’s philosophy of education is based on the Foundational Concepts of Christian Higher Education. Geneva is a founding member of the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU).
