Savannah Travis of Bainbridge Island was inducted into Ohio Wesleyan University’s chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, the nation’s oldest academic honor society.

At Ohio Wesleyan, Travis studied psychology. She joined Phi Beta Kappa as a member during a ceremony held Friday, May 10.

Nationwide, only 10 percent of all U.S. colleges and universities have Phi Beta Kappa chapters, and each of the 286 chapters selects only 10 percent of its graduates annually to join through a highly selective, merit-based invitation process.

Based in Washington, D.C., Phi Beta Kappa was founded in 1776 and the organization counts 17 U.S. presidents, 40 Supreme Court justices, and more than 140 Nobel laureates among its members.
