KEARNEY – Mortar Board National College Senior Honor Society has presented a Gold Torch award to the Xi Phi chapter at University of Nebraska at Kearney. The Gold Torch is a national distinction conferred annually upon the most outstanding chapters of Mortar Board.
Recipients of the Gold Torch excel in all areas of chapter operations while promoting scholarship, leadership and meaningful service to their institutions.
“We are extremely proud of our Gold Torch chapters. Their members set the bar for excellence as scholar-leaders on their campuses, and their innovative programming positively impacts their communities throughout the year,” said Mortar Board National President Abigail Diehl.
UNK chapter President Trevor Wiegert of Fremont accepted the award at the Society’s national conference this summer in Indianapolis. This year, 36 chapters took home the Gold Torch.
