The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society, has initiated Kathryn Callahan to the Plymouth State University chapter and Bennett Ward into University of Massachusetts Amherst chapter.


Liam Gallagher, a graduating senior at Amesbury High School, has been named one of 565 semifinalists in the 2014 U.S. Presidential Scholars Program. The semifinalists were selected from more than 4,000 candidates on the basis of superior achievements, leadership qualities, personal character, and involvement in the community and school activities.

Final selections of the scholars will be made by the commission on Presidential Scholars, a group of eminent citizens appointed by the president and will be announced in May. The commission will select one young man and one young woman from each state, The District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and U.S. students living abroad; up to 20 students representing the visual, literary and performing arts; and 15 students at-large.

Scholars will be invited to Washington D.C., in June to receive the U.S. Presidential Scholars medallion at a recognition ceremony and to participate in various activities and events held in their honor.
