Congratulations to New Honors Partners!

As you may know – and if you don’t, may I redirect you to this blog post – one of the three steps to graduating with additional Honors Distinction is Honors Partnership. A student earns Honors Partnership through active participation in the Honors community–attending events, contributing to the blog, or volunteering, just to give a few examples. 10 Honors Points, earned through attending events and participating in Honors opportunities, will earn you Honors Partnership. Once students earn Partnership, they are able to move on to Scholarship and Leadership, the other components necessary for Distinction, which then earns them a special medal and cord at graduation, a special senior ceremony, and your name on a plague in the Honors Office.

We are excited to announce that we have a new group of students who have earned Partnership! Thank you all for your contributions to our community!

To celebrate this achievement, the Honors Partner ceremony will take place at Friday’s HSG meeting in ALH 207 at 2:30. There will be special catering provided to celebrate, and a gift and certificate awarded to our new Partners!
