Sixty new members of the Delta of North Carolina Chapter were inducted into Phi Beta Kappa at a delightful ceremony at the Wake Forest University Byrum Welcome Center on Tuesday, April 18, 2023. A highlight of the festivities was a short address from Professor of Chemistry and Associate Dean Rebecca Alexander, who drew upon her own experiences to provide words that were simultaneously personal and inspirational. Here is the Final 2023 Initiation Program.
