International Student Honor Society Inductees

IPC would like to congratulate both Tshering Tobgay and Amanda Headley for their wonderful achievements of being inducted into two prestigious honor societies this past month.

Tshering Tobgay was one of only 38 students at UNCG to be inducted in Phi Beta Kappa. Phi Beta Kappa is America’s oldest and most widely known academic honor society that celebrates and advocates excellence in the liberal arts and sciences, and inducts the most outstanding arts and sciences students at America’s leading colleges and universities. Tshering (known to his friends as Tobey) has been with IPC working with Pamela Harrod, Director of International Admissions, for the past four years doing highly detailed and skilled work. Even as an undergraduate, Tobey attended and presented at a conference in Las Vegas and has performed graduate-level research in the Geography department. He is UNCG’s first student from the Kingdom of Bhutan and is graduating in May with a BA in Geography. But we don’t have to say goodbye to him yet! Tobey is continuing in the fall to pursue a second Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science.

Amanda Headley was inducted into Phi Beta Delta, the first honor society dedicated to recognizing scholarly achievement in international education. Amanda, from Trinidad and Tobago, is studying Speech-language Pathology and Audiology at UNCG, and is highly involved on campus. She is a Resident Advisor in the Lloyd International Honors College Residence Hall, Vice President of the UNCG Chapter of Golden Key International, volunteer English conversation partner with INTERLINK students, and an active member of the Global Leadership Program. Amanda also tutors a class of 17 fourth grade refugee students at The Doris Henderson Newcomer’s School and is a member of several student panels and committees on campus. Additionally, Amanda has worked with Pamela Harrod as a Peer Academic Leader for her University Studies (UNS 101) course for several semesters and is on track to pursue her goal of a Doctorate in Audiology.
