University of Houston NSCS Chapter Receives Gold AwardThe University of Houston chapter of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS) chapter was awarded gold STAR status at the NSCS Leadership Summit.
The National Society of Collegiate Scholars is an honors organization for high-achieving freshmen and sophomores with more than 270 student-run chapters at universities across the country. The UH NSCS chapter was founded in 1998.
For Thomas Locke, the NSCS national staff representative who works with University of Houston’s chapter officers, the award comes as no surprise.
“The members of University of Houston’s chapter are amazing,” said Thomas Locke. “They have gone above and beyond by 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.”
The UH chapter officers accepted the award on behalf of the officers, chapter adviser and members. For the UH NSCS, the reward of attaining gold status is second only to the impact it has had on the community and the bonds it has strengthened between chapter members.
NSCS chapters can attain one of four STAR status levels: bronze, silver, gold and platinum. Each level is determined based on the quantity and quality of events a chapter held the previous year.
