HAGERSTOWN - Sixty Hagerstown Community College students were inducted Sunday into the college's Phi Theta Kappa honor society chapter.
"You wouldn't be here today if you weren't already highly motivated," said Cheyanne Lewis, an HCC alumna and former chapter president.
Lewis, who graduated from HCC in 1999, earned her bachelor's degree from Shepherd College and a master's of science from Shippensburg University, she said.
Lewis was especially proud of her daughter, 19-year-old Sarah F. Palmer, who was among Sunday's inductees.
"It's very emotional because it hasn't been that long for me. It's very rewarding," Lewis said.
Lewis gave a PowerPoint presentation featuring several HCC faculty and staff who encouraged her as a student. Lewis works at HCC's testing center and as an adjunct professor.
