Ehlers inducted into Phi Kappa Phi

Matthew Ehlers, of Absecon, majoring in fire protection administration, is one of 53 Eastern Kentucky University juniors, seniors and graduate students who were inducted into the EKU chapter of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi during a special ceremony in November.

Ehlers is among about 30,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni to be initiated into Phi Kappa Phi each year. Membership in Phi Kappa Phi is by invitation and requires nomination and approval by a chapter. Only the top 10 percent of seniors and 7.5 percent of juniors, having at least 72 semester hours, are eligible for membership.

Graduate students in the top 10 percent of the number of candidates for graduate degrees may also qualify, as do faculty, professional staff and alumni who have achieved scholarly distinction.
