The Torch Chapter of Mortar Board at Rhodes College has tapped 34 students for membership. “Tapping” is the step that occurs after a candidate applies and has been selected, but before formal initiation. It is a way to let candidates know that they have been chosen to become members of Mortar Board.
Only a select few students on each campus are invited to join this esteemed society, which recognizes achievements in scholarship, leadership and service. Mortar Board was founded in 1918, and the Torch chapter at Rhodes was established in 1964.
The Rhodes chapter will induct the following individuals on April 6:
Ying (Samantha) Ouyang
Alix de Witt
