Victoria Hamilton of Wake Forest, a junior at Catawba College, has been named third alternate for the Alfred H. Nolle Scholarship given by Alpha Chi National College Honor Scholarship Society.

An English major and member of Catawba’s Omicron Chapter of Alpha Chi, Hamilton competed with 44 nominees from Alpha Chi chapters all over the country. Antonia Bowden, who graduated from Catawba in 2005, held a Nolle scholarship her senior year.

The Nolle scholarships are offered to rising seniors and applied to tuition for the senior year. Alpha Chi also offers fellowships for graduate study. A national honor society with active chapters at some 300 institutions in almost every state, Alpha Chi restricts its membership to students in the top 10 percent of the junior and senior classes. Catawba has had a chapter since 1978.
