Chelsie Binder of Germansville was recently inducted into the AAA Honor Society at Cedar Crest College, Allentown.

Alpha Alpha Alpha Honor Society is a nonprofit chapter-based membership organization at colleges and universities within the United States.

An active Tri-Alpha chapter promotes academic excellence and provides opportunities for personal growth, leadership development, and campus and community service for first-generation college students.

Induction into Tri-Alpha is earned by outstanding academic achievement and lasts for a lifetime.

The society’s mission is to encourage and reward academic excellence among first-generation college students pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in accredited institutions of higher learning.

Tri-Alpha membership is by chapter invitation for eligible students who must be a current full-time degree candidate in a baccalaureate program, has completed at least 48 credit hours (or 12 course units) terms of study, at least one of which must have been at the institution where they are being inducted (for transfer students), who has an overall GPA of at least 3.2 in all coursework, and who comes from a family where neither parent nor any legal guardians earned a Bachelor’s degree.
