The NOVA Honors Program is thrilled with their success at the Virginia Collegiate Honors Council (VCHC) Conference that was held on April 7 and 8 at Old Dominion University (ODU), where 17 college-wide NOVA Honors students presented their original research. Five NOVA Honors faculty served as judges – college-wide Honors Coordinator Stacy Rice, Alexandria Honors Chair and 2016-2017 VCHC Vice President John Sound, Annandale Honors Chair and former VCHC President Paul Fitzgerald, Loudoun Honors Chair Tim Eichers and Manassas Honors faculty and former VCHC President MaryAnn Schmitt.

NOVA also agreed to host the 2018 VCHC Conference in Washington, DC, next spring. This is a huge honor and will be an exciting conference because the Southern Regional Honors Council has agreed to have their conference in conjunction with the VCHC. This will be the first time that these two prestigious conferences will be hosted by one college, and NOVA is excited to be the host for both councils.

NOVA Honors is also proud to announce that two of our students, Furquan Bin Amjad and Annaliess Trommatter, were among the nine total winners who received recognition and a cash award. This is impressive as they were competing against both four-year and two-year Honors college students. Amjad was also elected as the two-year VCHC student representative. The NOVA Honors Program would like to thank the NOVA administration for their continued support of Honors and our students, as well as the NOVA Honors chairs for driving the students to ODU.
