Morgan, Pierce Join 26 Students In Kappa Gamma Pi Graduate Honor Society

Twenty-six Niagara University students were inducted into Kappa Gamma Pi, the National Catholic College Graduate Honor Society, during a ceremony held May 6, 2016, in St. Vincent’s Hall.

Two honorary inductees – Evan Pierce, associate director of graduate studies, and Howard Morgan, ’86, associate director for alumni and volunteer engagement – were also welcomed into Kappa Gamma Pi.

The purpose of Kappa Gamma Pi is to strive for a high standard of personal Christian excellence, service and scholarship among members; to encourage individual and group initiative and participation in local and national church and secular affairs; and to awaken a spirit of Christian leadership among the undergraduates of Kappa affiliated colleges and universities.

Kappa, gamma, and pi are the initial letters of the Greek phrase that means “Catholic Women Leaders.” The original name has been retained because of its importance in the society’s history. However, both non-Catholics and men are welcomed to the membership of Kappa Gamma Pi each year.

Membership in Kappa Gamma Pi is a promise for the future, to continue in service to church and community. Members are chosen because they have already demonstrated this commitment, and are expected to continue in this leadership role after graduation.
