HAYS, Kan. – The National Society of Collegiate Scholars chapter at Fort Hays State University was recently recognized as a Gold Star chapter for the 2017-18 academic year.

“The achievement of Gold Star Status is highly coveted among our 320 chapters throughout the country,” said Mitchell Altman, public relations coordinator for the NSCS. “All Gold Star Chapters were leaders in implementing engaging, student-centered events on their campuses and in their local communities, including a new member induction ceremony, Integrity Week and Planning to Achieve Collegiate Success,” he said.

The ACHS-certified organization recognizes high-achieving undergraduates who show high academic performance during their first and second years of college. NSCS has three pillars of scholarship, leadership, and service. The organization gives out more than a million dollars in scholarships, awards and chapter funds annually, provides leadership and service opportunities along with career and graduate school connections.

“NSCS members are deeply committed to scholarship, leadership and service, and as a result, they are impacting their campus and local communities every day,” according to NSCS’s website.

NSCS, founded in 1994, is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies and is recognized at more than 330 campuses throughout the country.

“The chapter has truly proven their commitment to the ideals that NSCS holds dear,” said Altman. “Their exceptional work is not only a credit to them as a chapter, but as students of FHSU as well.”
