History Honor Society Produces a Banner Year

Members of the Alpha Beta Epsilon chapter of the Phi Alpha Theta National History Honor Society were busy in 2013-14. Highlights of a successful year include the following:


  • Received highest enrollment of new members in the chapter’s history
  • Successfully raised funds for conference travel and sent seven members and one faculty advisor to the National Biennial Conference – the largest group ever in the chapter’s history
  • Featured in the National Phi Alpha Theta newsletter and website
  • Members were invited to publish
  • Members presented at regional, national, and international conferences
  • Hosted the 30th Annual Hawaii Regional Conference and established two new paper prizes
  • Established a Student Travel Fund


In addition, long-time faculty advisor Dr. Robert McGlone was honored by Phi Alpha Theta at the National Biennial Conference for his 29 years of tireless commitment to the organization. At the regional conference,  a new prize was established in his name. Even in retirement, Dr. McGlone continues to attend chapter meetings. New faculty advisors for the coming year will be Dr. Karen Jolly and Dr. Peter H. Hoffenberg.


Congratulations to the Alpha Beta Epsilon members for a job well-done.
