The EKU Epsilon Chapter sent 14 members to the national conference – three more members than any other chapter.
“EKU’s Epsilon Chapter of Alpha Phi Sigma is a very worthy student association that pays back to EKU, the College of Justice & Safety, and the School of Criminal Justice,” said Dr. James Wells, professor in the School of Justice Studies and faculty sponsor. “Much of the credit for this year’s success is due to the leadership of our chapter’s student president, James Gerlach, and his executive officers, Joe Ellis, Krista Smithers, Sofia Guadagni and Morgan Bow.”
