Your honor society is HOW old?
I don’t know about you but we’re feeling … (Sing with us!)… 22
(In the world of honor societies, 22 is super young, by the way. It must be why we’re cool.)
NSCS celebrates its 22nd Founders Day on April 30th. And we’re taking the opportunity to throw it back to all of the members who have been founders. Here’s to the ones who discover, take the first step, make something where there was nothing, come before anyone else did, and take it to new places. Cheers! You are saluted, honored, and sincerely congratulated.
ICYMI, NSCS was founded in 1994 by Steve Loflin on the campus of The George Washington University in Washington, DC. Steve saw that while older students were invited to join honor societies, there wasn’t an opportunity for freshmen and sophomores. Steve created NSCS because he knew how important it was for younger students to have a support system of other high achievers early in their college careers.
It’s our tradition to spend April 30th reflecting on our achievements in the past year. During the 2015-2016 academic year, we’ve welcomed even more members to increase past one million members. We also awarded so much money in scholarships to some amazing recipients.
None of this could have been possible without dedicated chapter officers and advisors at over 300 campuses, physical and online, across the country. Throughout this week, follow #NSCS22 to meet and thank some of the people who make NSCS a great organization.
