UNC Asheville’s chapter of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS) recently received a gold award at the NSCS Honor Gala in Washington, D.C. The chapter received the award for meeting a series of goals, including holding an induction ceremony, creating a student mentoring program, holding campus-wide events to support NSCS’ integrity initiative, creating an on-campus membership recruitment campaign and engaging a campus office in a chapter event.
The chapter also received a $250 Chapter Scholarship. Of the more than 270 NSCS chapter nationwide, 76 received the gold award this year.
“The members of the University of North Carolina at Asheville’s chapter are amazing,” said Sherice Evans, the NSCS staff representative who works with UNC Asheville’s chapter officers. “They have truly embraced the ideals of NSCS.”
NSCS is an honors organization open to college students based on grade point average and class standing. UNC Asheville’s chapter was established in 2005.
