The Alpha Kappa Epsilon Chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha, the National Political Science Honor Society, at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg is inducting two new members for fall 2020.

The inductees are:

Pi Sigma Alpha is one of the prestigious and selective honor societies in the United States and the only one specific to the field of political science.

Its rolls feature national, state, and local political leaders, including one president, three Supreme Court justices, and dozens of members of Congress. The network of Pi Sigma Alpha members stretches across law, academia, business, and more.
