GREENSBORO, N.C. – UNCG men’s soccer goalkeeper Peyton Ford was one of 38 students inducted into UNCG’s Epsilon chapter of Phi Beta Kappa recently.
Phi Beta Kappa recognizes outstanding scholarship in the liberal arts and sciences. Students must have the following to be inducted: a high grade point average, at least six credit hours of a foreign language at the intermediate level and three-fourths of the total number of hours in courses of a genuinely liberal character, as determined by the chapter.
In 2006, the national society named Epsilon chapter the nation’s most outstanding chapter at a public university.
Ford, who will be a redshirt senior for the Spartans for the 2012 season, finished his undergraduate career with 3.98 grade point average majoring in political science. He recently won the Southern Conference’s Dave Hart Graduate Scholarship, named in memory of former SoCon Commissioner Dave Hart Sr. He is also a member of UNCG’s Golden Chain Honor Society.
Ford, who minored in business, will attend UNCG’s Bryan School of Business while he completes his eligibility and will pursue an MBA.
