Darius Morgan, a senior in the Bachelor of Science in Health Information Management program, has been selected into the prestigious Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society. He was inducted into the nation’s oldest and most selective, all-discipline honor society on March 30, 2012.
“I would just like to thank God for allowing me to have involved parents, supportive friends and family, and professors who are genuinely concerned about their student’s success,” said Morgan. “They have truly helped me get where I am today. It means a lot to me to be recognized for all our hard work that we put into my studies, and I share this honor with all of them.”
Standards for election to Phi Kappa Phi are high. Membership is by invitation only to UAB’s top 7.5 percent of second term juniors and the top 10 percent of seniors and graduate students. Members have served in the White House, Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court. Other members included Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winners.
Morgan, of White Hall near Montgomery, is currently completing his management internship at Princeton Baptist Medical Center. He plans to obtain his certification as a registered Health Information Administrator. His long term goal is to become a corporate HIM director.
Morgan is very involved at UAB. He is in the Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society and tutors as well as mentors his peers. He’s a volunteer teacher aid at Morning View and Jackson Steele Elementary Schools in Alabama. He also participates in Life 180 and intramural basketball at UAB.
