Four URI students inducted into
engineering honor society

KINGSTON, R.I. -- May 9, 2000 -- The University of Rhode Island chapter of Tau Beta Pi, the national engineering honor society, inducted four students during ceremonies recently.

Inducted were David J. Baldwin of East Greenwich, Loc C. Lam of Cranston, Susan Rhodes of Middletown, and Louise D. Verte of West Warwick. Stanley Youngsaye of Cumberland was elected president of the society for the 2000-2001 school year.

To become a member of Tau Beta Pi, students in their junior year must rank in the top one-eighth of their class, while seniors must rank in the top one-fifth of their class. Students must also demonstrate a spirit of community service and concern.

Tau Beta Pi was founded in 1885 to recognize the distinguished academic achievements of engineering students. The society has 195 collegiate chapters with more than 300,000 members.
