­Eastern Kentucky University student Brittany D. Neaves, of Mount Sterling, recently was selected to serve on the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society’s 2012-14 Council of Students.

Established in 2010, Phi Kappa Phi’s Council of Students acts as an advisory panel for the Society. The group is comprised of two student vice presidents from each of the Society’s five regions. Two members of the council will be elected by their peers at the Society’s convention Aug. 10-11 in St. Louis, Mo., to be voting members of Phi Kappa Phi’s national board of directors.

A senior majoring in accounting, Neaves was initiated into Phi Kappa Phi in 2012 at EKU and serves as a student vice president for the university’s Phi Kappa Phi chapter. As a member of the 2012-14 council, Neaves will represent the interests of students in the Society’s southeastern region.

Neaves is in her second semester with Dean Dorton Allen Ford in Lexington as an accounting co-op student.

Founded in 1897 at the University of Maine, Phi Kappa Phi is the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines. The Society has chapters on more than 300 select colleges and universities in North America and the Philippines.
