The EKU Epsilon Chapter of the Alpha Phi Sigma Criminal Justice Honor Society recently returned to Richmond from its annual conference with several awards.

Chapter awards include:

• First place national award for “Star Chapter Award”
• Second place national award for “Community Service Theme Project - Interdiction to Addiction”
• Community Service Committee Chair, Tiffani peel, won the $1,500 V.A. Leonard Scholarship. This is the second time, and the second year in a row that an EKU chapter member has won this top scholarship award from Alpha Phi Sigma. V.A. Leonard founded Alpha Phi Sigma in 1942
• Undergraduate criminal justice student Caleb Houchens won first place in the Criminal Justice General Knowledge Test and was the recipient of a $500 scholarship
• Undergraduate student Peyton Ratliff won a $75 scholarship

There was a total of $2475 in monetary funds associated with the above-mentioned awards.

As you can see, Alpha Phi Sigma is a very worthy association that pays back to EKU, the College of Justice & Safety, and the School of Criminal Justice.

Please congratulate our chapter for their noteworthy accomplishments. Much of the credit for this year’s success is due to our current student President Krista Smithers.

We are looking forward to receiving more awards at next year's competition at ACJS in New Orleans. I hope the University, College and School can continue to support our chapter’s efforts.

-Dr. James Wells
