NSU Golden Key Chapter Receives Recognition
(NSU NEWSROOM--Aug. 1, 2014)--Norfolk State University’s Golden Key International Honour Society received the Key Chapter Award in North America for 2014. It is one of Golden Key’s most prestigious honors. The university is among 23 chapters in North America being honored.
The award will be presented in Boston, Massachusetts, this weekend during the Golden Key International Honour Society Summit.
The Key Chapter Award is presented annually to select Golden Key chapters that have achieved a Gold chapter standard, the highest possible reporting in the Society. In order for a chapter to achieve this status, it must fulfill all activity and service requirements determined by Golden Key headquarters.
Yet, only 25 percent of the Society’s chapters achieve gold status, which does not necessarily ensure being named a Key Chapter. Of the 84 chapters that earned a gold status in 2014, only 23 were named a Key Chapter for the 2013-2014 academic year.
In addition, the NSU chapter will also receive recognition on its 20th Anniversary.
Dr. Clarence D. Coleman, NSU vice provost and Golden Key advisor, who remembers the obstacles he faced when working to establish the chapter 20 years ago, is grateful and proud of the recognition.
“The credit for the award is definitely attributed to our chapter leaders Don D. Manigault, Christeane Raflores, Javanese Fuller, Precious Dawkins and other dedicated members,” Coleman said. “This will highlight Norfolk State University at the International conference as a leader among the top 15 percent of all Golden Key Chapters internationally.
“It is an honor and a privilege to work with those outstanding students.”
