CC’s Mortar Board Chapter Receives National Awards

Colorado College’s Mortar Board chapter was among the outstanding chapters to be honored at the 2012 Mortar Board National Conference.

The CC chapter received the Silver Torch Award, which is presented to chapters executing timeliness and dedication while exemplifying the ideals of scholarship, leadership and service. The chapter also received a Project Excellence Award, in conjunction with its regional group, for the project “Garden of the Gods.” Participants included Colorado College, Colorado State University, University of Denver,  University of Northern Colorado, University of Colorado, University of Utah, and University of Wyoming. This is the ninth consecutive year the group has participated in this project to clean up the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs.

Mortar Board is the premier national honor society recognizing college seniors for outstanding achievement in scholarship, leadership, and service. Since its founding in 1918, the Society has grown from four to 229 chartered collegiate chapters with more than a quarter-million members across the nation. The chapter at Colorado College was chartered in 2002 and currently has 18 members.
