HALL OF FAME

Hall of FameIn 2004 the international Board of Trustees established the Pi Gamma Mu Hall of Fame. The first inductees were announced during the triennial international convention in 2005. They were the late Dean Leroy Allen, Pi Gamma Mu's founder and first national president; Effie Urquhart, late executive secretary; retired Executive Director Ina Turner Gray; and Dr. C. Howard Patterson, late national president. At a 2006 board meeting, Dr. Scott Johnston, past international president, was inducted into the Hall of Fame. During the 2008 triennial convention, Dr. Orville D. Menard, past international president; Dan Quigley, late legal counsel to the board; the late Dr. Patricia A. Mulvey, founding sponsor of our chapter at Bluefield State College; and Dr. Stephen L. Fisher, long-time Pi Gamma Mu volunteer at Emory & Henry College were inducted into the hall.

The nomination process is relatively simple. Individuals can be nominated by chapters that submit a detailed narrative of the activities and accomplishments of the moninees. Chapters nominate, but the Selection Committee decides who best meet the criteria and at what level they might be honored. There are two basic levels: Honoree Extraordinaire and Honoree Superior. Once nominated, the individual remains under permanent consideration; chapters may--and are encouraged to--submit at any time additional information about the nominee to strengthen his case for selection.

The board has established the following minimum criteria for consideration in each category:

Category of Honoree Extraordinaire:

  • A record of no less than 15 years of service to the organization as chapter adviser, officer, or Board of Trustees member or in some other meritorious capacity.
  • An exemplary record of achievement and contribution in the social sciences and dedication toward Pi Gamma Mu
  • A unanimous vote among members of the Hall of Fame Selection Committee

Category of Honoree Superior:

  • A record of no less than 10 years of service to the organization as chapter adviser, officer, or Board of Trustees member orin some other meritorious capacity.
  • An exemplary record of achievement and contribution in the social sciences and dedication toward Pi Gamma Mu
  • A majority vote among members of the Hall of Fame Selection Committee.

Beyond a nominee’s activities as a Pi Gamma Mu sponsor, chapters should also consider her role as an academic in the social sciences: Did she make contributions to social science curriculum development on campus; was she active in doing research and publishing in the social sciences; was she a member or leader of other organizations associated with the social sciences; was she an effective and innovative teacher in the social sciences?

The Selection Committee will receive applications at any time, although selection of inductees will take place no more frequently than once each year. Nominations and supporting materials should be sent to Hall of Fame, Pi Gamma Mu, 1001 Millington, Suite B, Winfield, KS 67156.

CHANGE OF ADDRESS

Anytime you move, such as after graduation, please notify the Pi Gamma Mu office immediately.  We use your e-mail address to send out the Pi Gamma Mu Newsletter, so it is important that we have your current e-mail address. If the address we have for you is through your university it may not be available for you after graduation and you will not receive the newsletters.  Your mailing (postal) address is used to mail our journal, the International Social Science Review, so this information is also critical.  We want to remain in contact with you over the years.

We would appreciate it if you would send us your new mailing address and e-mail address.  You can e-mail us at executivedirector@pigammamu.org, or through the Web site at www.pigammamu.org/contact.html.  You can also mail a change of address card, post card, or letter with your name and old and new address to: Pi Gamma Mu, 1001 Millington, Suite B, Winfield, KS 67156.
