The Alpha Chi National College Honor Society named Waldorf College junior Lauren Camp as the first alternate of the Alfred H. Nolle Scholarship for 2013-14. Camp, from Savoy, Texas, was one of 71 students nominated for the Nolle Scholarship, which is awarded to 10 students for their senior year of undergraduate study.

“Membership in Alpha Chi is restricted to only the top ten percent of juniors and seniors at colleges and universities across the country, and thus the competition for this scholarship was very strong,” explained English professor Dr. Suzanne Falck-Yi, sponsor of Waldorf’s Iowa Iota Chapter of Alpha Chi.

Falck-Yi added, “Lauren’s application essay, ‘French Anti-Americanism: Cold War Origins in Post WWII France,’ demonstrates a fine work of historical scholarship, and I’m very proud of her accomplishment.”

According to its website, the Alpha Chi National College Honor Society “promotes academic excellence and exemplary character among college and university students and honors those who achieve such distinction.”

Camp is pursuing a major in history and minor in business at Waldorf College and plays on the Warrior softball team. Most recently, she was named to Waldorf’s spring Dean’s List for achieving at least a 3.5 GPA and taking 12 or more credits during the semester.
