Honors Study Topic
- The chapter President may be from Phillips county or Arkansas county,
and each campus will have four hallmark vice presidents listed below:
The Vice Presidents must be available for a summer planning session, and will
be in charge of the essay crediting the local chapter with the activities
implemented in each area. News articles, letters of support and photos must
accompany chapter essays.
- Activities designed to implement the Scholarship Hallmark should focus
primarily on the 2002-2004 Honors Study Topic, "Dimensions
and Directions of Health: Choices in the Maze". In addition
to incorporating the Honors Study Topic, scholarship activities should also
promote scholarship for students and faculty.
- Activities designed to implement the Leadership Hallmark should create
opportunities for the development of leadership skills for members,
officers, fellow students and members of the community. Chapters
should also design activities that will allow them opportunities to assume
leadership roles within the Society, the college and the community.
- This hallmark focuses on the International Service Program that is changed
every two years. The next two years will focus on
conquering cancer and is

- Fellowship activities should promote chapter development among less active
chapters, facilitate communication between chapters, and provide
opportunities for chapters to gather together and discuss chapter
programs. Fellowship activities can also include those that develop
campus regional unity or showcase the chapter as a participant in the
college and community. The best fellowship program offers a balance of
social and scholarly events.
