Auburn University’s Golden Key International Honour Society Recognizes Top 15% of Students

Auburn University’s Golden Key chapter held its Fall 2016 New Member Recognition Event on Monday, October 24th. The ceremony allowed new members to join their peers in recognition of their outstanding academic achievements by receiving official certificates of membership. The event included a speech by this year’s Honorary Member Recipient, Dr. Overtoun Jenda.

Each semester, the top 15% of Auburn University sophomores, juniors, seniors and graduate students are invited to join the prestigious International Honour Society. This semester, the university saw record numbers as the student organization has already met and exceeded its goal of 54 new members. “We are thrilled that so many students have joined Golden Key this semester. We have worked really hard to build our brand awareness so that students can be recognized and rewarded for their outstanding academic accomplishments here at Auburn University,” said Rachel Hoffman, chapter president.

Golden Key International Honour Society gives over half a million dollars in scholarships and awards to members each year, including ten $10,000 Graduate Scholar awards to students who have been admitted to graduate programs. Other opportunities include internships and study abroad programs, career assistance, community service projects and opportunities to travel.
