HALL OF FAME AWARD

In 2004 the Board of Trustees established the Pi Gamma Mu Hall of Fame.  The first inductees were announced during the Triennial Convention in 2005.  They were PGM Founder, Dean Leroy Allen, former Executive Secretary Effie Urquhart, former Executive Director Ina Turner Gray and former board member Dr. C. Howard Patterson.  At the 2006 board meeting, the board announced that board member emeritus Dr. Scott Johnston was being included in the Hall of Fame.  The 2008 Triennial Convention saw Dr. Orville Menard, former board president, and Dan Quigley, long time board attorney, join the Hall of Fame in the Honoree Extraordinaire category.  Former chapter sponsor, Dr. Patricia Mulvey of Bluefield State College, VA, and Dr. Stephen Fisher, faculty member and ardent supporter of the chapter at Emory & Henry College, VA, were inducted into the Honoree Superior category of the Pi Gamma Mu Hall of Fame.

The nomination process is relatively simple. Individuals can be nominated by chapters who submit a detailed narrative of the activities and accomplishments of the individual involved. Chapters nominate, but the Selection Committee decides who best meets 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 submit at any time, and are encouraged to do so, additional information about the individual to strengthen their case for selection, particularly if early selection does not take place.

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

Category of Honoree Extraordinaire:

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

Category of Honoree Superior:

  1. A record of no less than 10 years of service to the organization as chapter adviser, officer, Board of Trustees members in some other meritorious capacity.
  2. An exemplary record of achievement and contribution in the social sciences and dedication toward Pi Gamma Mu
  3. 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 their role as an academic in the social sciences: did they make contributions to social science curriculum development on campus; were they active in doing research and publishing in the social sciences; were they members or leaders of other organizations associated with the social sciences; were they effective and innovative teachers 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.  This will prevent your mailings from being interrupted or discontinued.  The International Social Science Review is not forwarded by the post office, so we don't know if you receive it.  Just mail a change of address card, post card, letter, email (executivedirector@pigammamu.org) or go to our website (www.pigammamu.org) to change your address information.  We need your name, as well as your old and new address.
