When Eastern Kentucky University’s chapter of Delta Tau Alpha conducted its Spring Initiation Ceremony recently, Lauren Brown, left, a junior from Taylorsville, was among those initiated. Delta Tau Alpha is a national agricultural honor society that promotes and recognizes scholarship and leadership accomplishments of agricultural students while emphasizing character development, enhancing undergraduate preparation for professional positions, and joining with other agricultural student’s organizations in the promotion of agriculture. To receive an invitation to join DTA, students must meet academic, leadership and character standards. Students must have completed at least 45 semester hours of college courses with nine of those hours in agriculture courses and must rank in the highest 35 percent of their class. Students must also be of good character and possess qualities of leadership as determined by the chapter.
