Delta Epsilon Iota Academic Honor Society has selected Christina Marie Richardson for membership in the local chapter at the University of Nevada, Reno.

The daughter of Steve and Bonnie Richardson of Stateline, Richardson is a 2006 graduate of George Whittell High School. She is a student at UNR, where she is majoring in international businesses, foreign languages and Spanish literature, and expects to graduate in December 2010.

Richardson plans to study abroad in Spain this fall in the intensive Spanish program.

After completing the full semester, she will have a minor in Spanish and will continue pursuing her degree in international business at UNR. An active member of the UNR women’s club volleyball team, Richardson was on the dean’s list in fall 2006.

Delta Epsilon Iota was established to recognize and encourage academic excellence in all fields of study.

The organization rewards outstanding students through financial scholarships, provides leadership opportunities to members, and promotes the principles of dedication, enthusiasm and initiative among students participating in higher education throughout the United States.
