Lauren Gavinski, of White Haven, was inducted into the Phi Sigma Iota honor society at Susquehanna University.
Phi Sigma Iota is the international foreign language honor society for outstanding students in a classical or modern language. It selects only students in the top 35% of their class, as well as faculty who have contributed substantially to the foreign languages, literatures and cultures.
Students must also have received distinguished grades in upper division courses of a foreign language or literature.
Gavinski was an early childhood education major at Susquehanna. A 2011 graduate of Hazleton Area High School, she is the daughter of Victor and Roxanne Gavinski.
Susquehanna is a selective, residential liberal arts college that provides a solid background in the liberal arts and sciences, and professional experiences.
