“Curry just felt like the best fit for me. And the education program felt the same way. I found caring professors at Curry who have become the close mentors I enjoy. They helped me become comfortable with what I want to do with my future. I feel like I really found my place.”

- Pi Lambda Theta Honor Society
Pi Lambda Theta Honor Society
Pi Lambda Theta was founded in 1910. Its mission is to honor outstanding educators and inspire their leadership on critical education issues. The most selective society of its kind, PLT extends membership to students and professionals who satisfy academic eligibility requirements and have demonstrated characteristics of scholarship, leadership and service.
Education majors who have completed 60 credits and have earned a GPA of 3.5 or above are nominated for membership and invited to join Pi Lambda Theta. Each spring, an induction ceremony is held by the undergraduate education department to formally commemorate membership in the prestigious organization.
The Education Department was proud to announce that seven students were inducted into the Pi Lambda Theta Education Honor Society for 2012:
Alysia R. Carcieri
Claire P. Goebel
Jordan L. Lancaster
Sarah V. Crumley
Kristin L. Salwen
The students celebrated their induction into the highly selective international honors society at a dinner reception on the Milton campus with faculty, family and fellow Pi Lambda Theta members. This ceremony brings the Curry chapter to a total of 40 honorees in the past 5 years. These students have exceeded the stringent criteria set by the honors society and demonstrate promise in the field of education.
Members of the education faculty, assisted by previously inducted students Diana Byrne and Sara Berman, led the group through the traditional candle lighting and pinning ceremonies and capped the event with the Pi Lambda pledge and signing of the charter.
Students who have achieved this honor in past years are as follows:
