THIBODAUX — Nicholls State University mathematics senior Tyler Dufrene has been selected to serve on national honor society Phi Kappa Phi’s Council of Students.
Dufrene, a Raceland native, was one of 10 students from across the country selected to serve a two-year term on the honor society’s council.
“I look forward to serving on the council and will do my best to make Nicholls shine on the national stage,” Dufrene said. “I cannot wait to begin working with other members of the council to better serve Nicholls and the society as a whole.”
As a member of the council Dufrene will serve as a student voice, acting as a liaison between the honor society’s Board of Directors and student members, attending meetings and visiting Phi Kappa Phi chapters across the nation. He will also attend the Phi Kappa Phi national convention Aug. 6-8 in St. Louis, Missouri, and the 2015 Student Vice President Leadership Summit in Baton Rouge.
Dufrene was initiated and elected student vice president of the Nicholls chapter of Phi Kappa Phi in spring 2014. In addition, Dufrene is a member of the Nicholls Math Club and the Nicholls Education Association of Teachers (NEAT). He currently works as a math teacher at Central Lafourche High School in Mathews.
