National Athletic Honor Society ceremony adds success
On Friday March 18, Point Park University held a luncheon at the Engineers' Society in downtown Pittsburgh to honor 27 student athletes for their accomplishments both on and off the field.
"Chi Alpha Sigma is the National College Athlete Honor Society," Director of Athletics Dan Swalga said. "A not for profit organization founded at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana in May of 1996, the Society recognizes students who receive a varsity letter in their sport while maintaining a 3.4 or higher cumulative GPA through their junior or senior years. The mission of Chi Alpha Sigma is to bring honor and recognition to deserving student athletes, their families, teams, athletic departments and colleges in much the same way that Phi Beta Kappa honors scholastics. All levels of competition in the NCAA and NAIA can participate. Both the NCAA and NAIA approve the concept and mission of Chi Alpha Sigma."
