University of West Georgia NSCS Chapter Receives Gold Award

CARROLLTON, GA -- The University of West Georgia's chapter of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars has achieved the gold award.

The UWG chapter was awarded gold STAR status at the NSCS Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C.

The National Society of College Scholars is an honors organization for high-achieving freshmen and sophomores, with more than 270 student-run chapters at universities across the country. UWG's chapter was founded in 2002.

For Sherice Evans, the NSCS national staff representative who works with UWG's chapter officers, the award comes as no surprise.

"The members of University of West Georgia's chapter are amazing," she said. "They have gone above and beyond by creating innovate programs and expanding and improving existing programs and have provided an exceptional experience for their members. They have truly embraced the ideals of NSCS."

The chapter's officers accepted the award of behalf of the officers, chapter advisor and members. The chapter will also receive a $250 chapter scholarship and letter to the president of UWG to commemorate attaining gold status.

For UWG's chapter, the reward of attaining gold status is second only to the impact it has had on the community and the bonds it has strengthened between chapter members.

To attain gold status, chapters are required to hold an induction ceremony for new members, create a student mentoring program, hold campus-wide events to support NSCS's integrity initiative, create an on-campus membership recruitment campaign and engage a campus office in a chapter event.

NSCS chapters can attain one of four STAR status levels: bronze, silver, gold and platinum. Each level is determined based on the quality and quantity of events a chapter held the previous year.
