Thirteen Students Join Shannonhouse Honor Society

Thirteen students were inducted Jan. 28 into the Royal Graham Shannonhouse III Honor Society, which recognizes University of Baltimore School of Law students who have distinguished themselves academically after completing 32 credits..

Dean Ronald Weich congratulates Distinguished Scholar Kayla Coursey, while Associate Dean Dionne Koller greets the next honoree.

The minimum grade point average for induction is 3.15. Students who have achieved a GPA of 3.7 or higher are inducted as Distinguished Scholars.

The honor society is named after a longtime, and much revered, UB School of Law professor.
