Hall gets Award of Excellence

Benjamin K. Hall, of Frankfort, was recently presented an Award of Excellence by The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi for the 2006-07 academic year. Hall is a senior at Georgetown College.

The Award of Excellence will enable him to pursue a Ph.D. in statistics at the University of Kentucky. He is the son of Bobby and Sara Hall.

This honor counts Hall among 100 students nationwide to receive the Phi Kappa Phi Fellowship and Award of Excellence. Since its creation in 1932, the Fellowship Program has become one of the Society's most visible and financially well-supported endeavors, allocating nearly $380,000 annually to deserving students for first-year graduate study.

Currently, 60 Fellowships of $5,000 and 40 Awards of Excellence of $2,000 are awarded each year.

Those students are David Roach, Danielle Salyers, Justin Thompson, and Emily Welch.

Students earned this award by scoring at or above the national average on at least one part of the SAT or the ACT.
