Ranno recognized by Phi Theta Kappa honor society

HERKIMER -- St. Johnsville resident Katie Ranno was recently recognized by Herkimer County Community College’s Upsilon Epsilon Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa’s All-New York Academic Awards. The ceremony recognizes outstanding community college students throughout the state.

In addition to academic achievement, recipients of the award are also evaluated on their leadership and community service involvement. They are also named members of the All New York Community College Academic Team. This year, 65 SUNY and eight CUNY students were honored.

Ranno is majoring in digital filmmaking. Her career goal is to work in radio, TV and/or journalism. She participates in Herkimer County Community College’s Honors program, is secretary for the Radio/TV Club, and a member of Campus Christian Fellowship. 

Ranno said “I want to receive a Bachelor’s in Radio/TV Broadcasting with a minor in Journalism, with the hope of combining my two interests by working at a news station.”

BATON ROUGE -- The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi has announced that Bradley White, of Canajoharie, was recently initiated into Phi Kappa Phi, the nation's oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines. White is pursuing a degree in Music Education at State University of New York at Potsdam.

White is among approximately 32,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni to be initiated into Phi Kappa Phi each year. Membership is by invitation and requires nomination and approval by a chapter.

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.

Founded in 1897 at the University of Maine and headquartered in Baton Rouge, L.A., Phi Kappa Phi is the nation's oldest and most selective all-discipline honor society.
