NSCS Awarded at National Convention

Truman’s chapter of National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS) was awarded the Gold STAR Award given to the most active and engaged chapter in NSCS at the 2011 NSCS Convention held in San Jan, Puerto Rico.

NSCS is an honors organization for high-achieving first and second year students with more than 300 student-run chapters at universities across the nation. Truman’s chapter was founded in 2000.

The award comes as no surprise to Rachel Thornton, the NSCS national staff representative who works with Truman’s chapter officers.

“The members of [Truman’s] chapter are amazing,” said Thornton. “They have gone above and beyond creating innovative programs and expanding and improving existing programs and have provided an exceptional experience for their members. They have truly embraced the ideals of NSCS.”

Along with the award, the chapter will receive a $250 Chapter Scholarship and a letter to University President Troy D. Paino to commemorate attaining Gold STAR status.
