Futrell advises Psi Chi inductees to contribute to the field of psychology
December 04, 2014
When Futrell stood before the Psi Chi honorees, he assured the audience his speech reflects advice that he gives high school students on a daily basis. He is confident inductees into an honor society can benefit from the comments too. "Strive to continuously acquire new skills and knowledge. Define your goals and identify how your strengths can help you overcome your obstacles to meet your goals," Futrell said "Seek out others’ strengths and collaborate. Take care of relationships because they become social capital" "Education is the equalizer regardless of your background. It provides everyone opportunities and levels the playing field. Get organized and make sure your priorities are in order. Begin with the end in mind!" Before closing his speech, Futrell advised the honorees to make sure they contribute to the field of psychology, because honor society membership is reserved for scholars. Six new inductees lined up to shake hands with a fellow Viking and to receive their honor society certificates.
