**Cowley inducts 30 new members into Mu Alpha Theta organization**

A ceremony was held Thursday evening in Cowley College’s Earle
N. Wright Community Room to induct 30 new members into the school’s
Mu Alpha Theta organization.

Attending the induction were new members, Alicia Ballard, Aaron Brooks,
Cori Brooks, Emily Crain, Darci Cramer, Morgan Kelley, Darci Mann, and
Zachary Tasker.

Sue Saia, Cowley College vice president of student affairs, was the speaker
for the evening. Math and Science Club co-sponsors, April Nittler and
Scott Layton, hosted the event.

Mu Alpha Theta is an asset to a student's record and resume. It is a
way to recognize capable math students, as well as to enhance the mathematics
instruction of the institution.

Mu Alpha Theta inductees automatically become members of Math and Science
Club, Mu Alpha Sigma Chi. Its major purpose is to promote greater interest
in mathematics and give recognition for excellence in mathematics performance
by community college students.

Membership in Mu Alpha Theta is limited to those students who have excelled
in mathematics and met the minimum standard for membership.
