During the April 25th, 2009 retirement party for Professors Tenn and Hichwa, our chapter of Sigma Pi Sigma was installed. Patrick Brown ('08), Adam Dye ('09), Katherine Wyman ('09), and Bradley Yearwood ('09) are among the first to be inducted into this Society for their outstanding academic performance, scholarship activities, and dedication to serving the community. As the advisor of the student club, Dr. Hongtao Shi was also inducted. Thanks to Prof. Hichwa for being the Installing Officer and congratulations to all inductees!
