Phi Beta Kappa and JFM

This weekend, my little brother was inducted in to the oldest honors society in the country - Phi Beta Kappa.  Approximately 1 in 100 college students are invited to join.   Notable members include: John Quincy Adams, Eli Whitney, Samuel Morse, Nathanael Hawthorne, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Oliver Wendell Holmes, John D Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, John Updike, Gloria Steinem, George HW Bush, Condoleeza Rice, Theodore Roosevelt, George Stephanopoulos.... and Joseph Maloney.  

(Proud sister much? Yes).

Anyway, I was thrilled to witness the ceremony.  I know how hard Joe worked during college, and I'm thrilled that his hard work paid off.  Tomorrow he graduates with a degree in Economics, and I am so proud of him and humbled by him.  Something tells me that I'll be bragging "I'm Joe Maloney's sister" for years to come.  


  1. You forgot an important person on your list...Erin H.

    Proud sisterly-ness abounds!


    1. We have such smart siblings :) Yay Erin!
