BATON ROUGE, La. — Zachariah Wignall of Creston was recently initiated into Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society, the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines. Wignall is pursuing a degree in mechanical engineering at Iowa State University.

Wignall is among approximately 32,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni to be initiated into Phi Kappa Phi each year. Membership is by invitation and requires nomination and approval by a chapter. Only the top 10 percent of seniors and 7.5 percent of juniors, having at least 72 semester hours, 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 scholarly distinction.
