Maier, Emrich to join honor society

John William Maier of Nevada City and Kathryn E. Emrich of Grass Valley will be inducted into the Beta Mu Zeta Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa at Sierra College on Nov. 17.

Maier is majoring in communications and is the son of Ron Maier and Angela DiNicola.

Emrich is majoring in psychology and is the daughter of Josh and Jennifer Emrich and Hedy and Robert Austin, of Grass Valley and Reno, Nev.

Established in 1918 by two-year college presidents, Phi Theta Kappa is the oldest and most prestigious honor society serving two-year colleges around the world. The society recognizes and encourages the academic achievement of students and provides opportunities for development through honors, leadership and service programming.

Students must rank in the top 20 percent of the class to be invited to membership in Phi Theta Kappa and must maintain high academic standing during their enrollment in the two-year college.

Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 1.7 million members and 1,100 chapters in the United States, Canada and Germany.
