Chapin woman is named one of Newberry College's Bachman Honor Scholars

Newberry, S.C. 11/15/2021 — Emma McCall of Chapin, an accounting major, has been named a Newberry College Bachman Honors Scholar. The Bachman Honor Society has long been one of the highest honors Newberry College bestows on students.

Founded in 1962 by faculty and named for the college’s principal founder, the Rev. John Bachman, the society is home to seniors who finish in the top 8% of their class for GPA.

This year, the society decided to split its induction, historically a single ceremony each spring, to recognize seniors graduating in fall and spring respectively. The decision allows prospective fall graduates to receive this well-deserved acknowledgement with their peers.

The society held its first fall induction on Friday during Founders Convocation in Wiles Chapel, and welcomed the following five students:

  • Preston Bowers, an accounting major from Pomaria

  • Sarah Dominick, a psychology major from Newberry

  • Kelsey Havird, a biology major, with an environmental studies concentration, from Newberry

  • Emma McCall, an accounting major from Chapin

  • Denelle Williams, a criminal justice major from Johannesburg, South Africa

The society also honored one faculty member and one administrative staff member:

  • Patrick Gagliano, chair of the Department of Arts and Communications and professor of theatre and speech, who arrived at Newberry College in 1994

  • Cindy Shealy, assistant registrar, who has served Newberry College since 1977

Dominick, McCall and Williams were honored in absentia.
