Clinton native Hannah Kelly was recently inducted into the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, which recognizes excellence in all academic disciplines.

Kelly, a 2007 graduate of Silliman Institute, was initiated at the University of Louisiana at Monroe and joins the 30,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni to be inducted into Phi Kappa Phi annually, a news release said.

Membership is by invitation only and requires being nominated and approved 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.

Founded in 1897 at the University of Maine and headquartered in Baton Rouge, Phi Kappa Phi’s Honor Society has chapters on more than 300 college and university campuses in the U.S. and the Philippines.
