Anne Mientka, of Albany, was recently inducted into the Alpha Delta Chapter of Triota at the University of Vermont. Chapters of Triota have been established at universities across the United States to promote an interest in women's studies, research of social problems affecting all women, and other social and intellectual activities that will lead to the improvement in the condition of all people. Membership is awarded on the basis of superior academic performance in both Women's and Gender Studies, and in the candidate's entire undergraduate work at UVM.
Mientka was also on the dean's list for the spring 2012 semester. Dean's list status is awarded to full-time undergraduate students who stood in the top 20 percent of each class.
