Chapter Inducts 35 into Mu Sigma Rho
Any group of statisticians at a nonacademic institution or comprising a chapter or section of a statistical society may apply to be an affiliate chapter of Mu Sigma Rho. Since most of the universities in the Kansas-Western Missouri Chapter’s area do not have enough students to establish their own chapters and all ASA chapters are automatically affiliate chapters, the Kansas-Western Missouri Chapter asked universities in the area to appoint a faculty member to serve on a nominating committee, which then selected eligible students for society membership.
Each committee member sent their list of names and a check for $5 per student to the national secretary, Jacquelin Dietz of Meredith College. She sent the template of the certificate to committee members and the national president, George McCabe of Purdue University, who sent the pins to the chair of the nominations committee.
At the chapter’s spring meeting, 22 attending students were inducted. Other students will be given certificates and pins by their respective faculty members.
Visit the ASA’s Kansas-Western Missouri Chapter website for more information and a list of the 2012 student inductees.
