Siena softball's Lindsey McKeever will be inducted into Phi Alpha Theta, the national history honor society, in a 5 p.m. ceremony on Wednesday afternoon. The team's tri-captain and starting centerfielder is one of 23 Siena students to be honored.
According to the organization's website, Phi Alpha Theta is an American honor society for undergraduate and graduate students and professors of history. The society is a charter member of the Association of College Honor Societies and has over 350,000 members, with about 9,500 new members joining each year through 860 local chapters.
McKeever has had a distinguished career at Siena College, both on the field and in the classroom. She has established herself as one of the top defensive outfielders in the MAAC, and as a History major, she has posted a 3.37 cumulative GPA heading into her final semester in Loudonville. Most notably, McKeever earned a 3.9 GPA in classes taken during the Fall 2011 semester.
The ceremony will be held at the Boland Room in the Fr. Benjamin Kuhn House on the Siena College campus.
