Society of Physics Students honored

The National Chapter of the Society of Physics Students (SPS) has named Henderson State University's SPS chapter a 2015-2016 SPS Outstanding Chapter. This is the highest level of distinction given by the national organization and is awarded to less than 10 percent of all chapters each year. This year, only 61 of 781 chapters from across the nation received the designation.

 The SPS Outstanding Chapter Award selection process is conducted by the SPS National Council. Rankings are based on a rubric measuring the level of SPS activities conducted by the local chapters in areas such as research, outreach, tutoring, involvement in physics meetings, providing social interaction for chapter members, and participation in SPS regional and national programs.

 Dr. Shannon Clardy, associate professor of physics, is Henderson's SPS faculty advisor.
