History honor society represents Austin Peay State University well at National Conference

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Deanna Carter, an Austin Peay State University history graduate student, felt a little like a celebrity. Whenever she walked through the lobby of the Hilton at Orlando’s Walt Disney World resort, people would stop their conversations and glance over at it.

Their attention was likely focused on her gray blazer, which had the words “Austin Peay State University Phi Alpha Theta History Honor Society” stitched across the front.

“There were people from as far as California there and from some very prestigious schools, such as Carnegie Melon University, and they all knew us,” Carter said.

APSU alum Jennifer Montgomery, APSU graduate student Deanna Carter, APSU associate professor of history Dr. Minoa Uffelman, APSU student Robin Sloan and APSU student Sammy Weakley gather at the national Phi Alpha Theta History Honor Society Conference earlier this month.

APSU History Honor Society Wins Best Chapter in Nation for Third Year in a Row

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Dr. Minoa Uffelman, associate professor of history at Austin Peay State University, kept checking her email earlier this week, hoping to hear something from the National Phi Alpha Theta (PAT) History Honor Society.

She knew that every year, around this time, the national organization announced the winners of the “Best Chapter” awards, and she was hoping APSU’s Theta Delta Chapter would take home the honor for an unprecedented third year in a row.

But by Tuesday morning, her email inbox was empty, and she began to get worried.

APSU History Honor Students Create New Scholarly Journal

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Jennifer Montgomery didn’t get much sleep this past semester. Aside from the normal stresses of a graduating college senior, the Austin Peay State University history student was plagued with images of misspelled words and incorrectly used commas during many sleepless nights. When she thought about scholarly citations and the proper use of the Chicago Manual of Style, she nearly went into a panic.

That’s because Montgomery, a member of the University’s Phi Alpha Theta (PAT) history honor society, took on an enormous responsibility during her final semester at APSU. She was appointed to serve as the editor-in-chief of the first scholarly history journal in Austin Peay’s history.

APSU Phi Alpha Theta Students Do Well at Regional History Conference

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Dr. Minoa Uffelman, assistant professor of history at Austin Peay State University, tried not to smile last week when asked if her students would put on a strong showing at the annual Phi Alpha Theta History Conference at Murray State University that weekend.

“Hopefully we’ll win something,” she said.

That was her way of being humble. The University’s PAT chapter, which Uffelman advises, was twice named as the “Best Chapter” in the country. The organization attracts some of the campus’ brightest history students, so it came as no surprise last weekend when two of its members took home the conference’s top awards.
