Religion Student Grabs National Honor Society Award
Buies Creek (NC) Senior Religion Major, David Priddy, received a national scholarship award this month from Theta Alpha Kappa, the National Religious Studies Honor Society. Priddy, who graduates in December, 2010, was inducted into Theta Alpha Kappa in the spring of 2010. He is the first Campbell student to receive this award.
Originally from Walkertown, NC, Priddy participated on this year’s Ethics Bowl team while serving as youth minister at Chalybeate Springs Baptist Church and working with the after-school program at Baptist Fellowship of Angier. He is the son of Christopher Priddy and Darlene McCracken.
According to Dr. Adam English, associate professor of Religion and moderator of the Campbell chapter of TAK, “David demonstrates all the qualities that this prestigious award calls for: he has a scholar’s mind that delights in reading and writing as well as a compassionate heart that finds joy in serving.”
Membership in Theta Alpha Kappa requires a 3.5 GPA in religion classes and a 3.0 overall GPA. Theta Alpha Kappa is a national organization with over 200 chapters in colleges and universities across the country. The Campbell University chapter has been in existence since 2006.
“The award is a one-time, non-renewable monetary prize,” says Dr. English. “It symbolizes that David, as a graduate of Campbell, stands shoulder to shoulder intellectually with any other member of TAK in any other school from across the country.”
