Shenandoah Valley Grad Initiated into Nation's Oldest Collegiate Honor Society

Alaina Demalis of Shenandoah, was recently initiated into The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest and most selective all-discipline collegiate honor society.


Demalis is pursuing a degree in Kinesiology at the Pennsylvania State University at University Park, Pa.
Demalis is among approximately 30,000 students, faculty, professional staff, and alumni to be initiated into the Phi Kappa Phi each year.

Membership is by invitation only and requires nomination and approval by a chapter.

Only the top 10 percent of seniors and 7.5 percent of juniors are eligible for membership.

Graduate students in the top 10 percent of the number of candidates for graduate degrees may also qualify, as do faculty, professional staff and alumni who have achieved scholarship distinction. Alaina is a 2016 graduate of Shenandoah Valley High School and the daughter of Anthony & Judy Demalis from Shenandoah Heights.

Demalis also recently received the Evan Pugh Scholar Award for her 4.0 cumulative GPA.
