GMercyU Criminal Justice Honor Society

Gwynedd Mercy University inducted ten new members into the National Criminal Justice Honor Society, Alpha Phi Sigma, on Wednesday, December 9. 

The seventh induction ceremony for GMercyU featured District Attorney of Montgomery County elect Kevin R. Steele as the guest speaker. Steele spoke with the students and their families about his rise through ranks, emphasizing on importance of hard work and dedication. 

"Opportunities arise when you work hard and you're there. You know that no task is too big for you or too small," Steele said. "That's important because often it's those smaller tasks that we do that allows people to have confidience in us and help move us forward." 

While the evening was about the inductees, Director of GMercyU's Criminal Justice Program Walter Zdunowski and Chair of GMercyU's Behavioral and Social Sciences Division Mary Reilly took some time to thank the parents for choosing GMercyU and giving their children the support they have needed to suceed.

"Your sons and daughters will be up to the task. Whatever job it may be," Profressor Zdunowski said.  "Some are going to be in law enforcement, others in probation, lawyers, some will be in the humanities. There's so many jobs out there for these students. They will make you proud. You're proud of them now."

The students inducteed into Alpha Phi Sigma included Jennifer L. Benson, Hunter Bishop, Brandon Boenning, Helen Embaye, Zara Habte, Andrew Kunkel, Richard Mychack, Emily Poe, Brandon Rodriguez, and Thomas Terra, Jr.
