HALL OF FAME AWARD

Pi Gamma Mu Hall of Fame AwardIn 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 Pi Gamma Mu’s founder, Dean Leroy Allen, the late Executive Secretary Effie Urquhart, former Executive Director Ina Turner Gray and  the late president Dr. C. Howard Patterson.  During the 2006 board meeting, past president Dr. Scott Johnson was inducted into the Hall of Fame.  At the convention in 2008, long-time volunteer Stephen L. Fisher, past president Orville D. Menard, the late chapter sponsor Patricia A. Mulvey, and  the late legal counsel Daniel E. Quigley were inducted.  During the 2011 convention, past presidents P. Kay Anderson and Hugh C. Bailey were inducted along with chapter sponsors Susan Stoudinger Northcutt and Linda G. Quest, and past board member Daniel M. Schores.

The nomination process is uncomplicated . Individuals can be nominated by chapters that 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 he or she 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 his or her 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:

  • 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, chapter 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 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 his or her role as an academic in the social sciences: Did he or she make contributions to social science curriculum development on campus; was he or she active in doing research and publishing in the social sciences; was he or she a member or leader of other organizations associated with the social sciences; was he or 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.
