Counseling Graduate Students Inducted in Professional Organization
Natalie Carr and Raymond Causey, graduate students in EKU’s Counselor Education Program, were inducted into the Epsilon Kappa Upsilon Chapter of the internationally prestigious Chi Sigma Iota in a virtual Pinning Ceremony on November 30. Chi Sigma Iota is the international honor society of professional counseling and for professional counselors.
The event on Zoom was led by EKU’s chapter president Taria Booker and current graduate student members Christine Dillon, Shelby Hardin, and Marissa Marmo. Dr. Angela Spiers, faculty advisor, and other College of Education faculty also attended.
Holly Hartwig Moorhead, chief executive of Chi Sigma Iota, noted EKU’s new inductees were invited to membership based on academic performance and professionalism. Chi Sigma’s membership is worldwide with over 130,000 initiated members. This makes CSI one of the largest single member organizations of professional counselors in the world. More than 400 chapters have been chartered, and new chapters are being developed in the U.S and other countries as counselor education programs commit to meeting national accreditation preparation standards.
