Texas Tech’s International Honour Society Achieves Highest Standing

The university’s Chapter of Golden Key receives Gold Standing.

Golden Key International Honour Society

Texas Tech University’s Golden Key International Honour Society chapter recently achieved Gold standing for the 2012-2013 academic school year.

Chapters receiving this standing met requirements by collaborating with other student organizations, participating in or planning service projects, implementing new member events and networking with Golden Key honorary members and alumni. Less than 25 percent of the chapters reached this standing.

Chapter advisors Janet Veal and Heather Medley look forward to the upcoming academic year and they already have made plans to grow the membership, activities and leadership opportunities within the Texas Tech chapter.

“Congratulations to Janet Veal, Heather Medley and the members of the Golden Key International Honour Society on this well deserved recognition,” said Texas Tech President M. Duane Nellis. “Golden Key is a wonderful organization, providing valuable support to our students. We are honored to receive this designation.”

Golden Key is the world’s largest society with more than two million members and 400 chapters across the U.S. and around the world. Its mission is to unlock the potential of each member by upholding standards of excellence on campus and beyond. The society offer members opportunities, connections and scholarships to support members for them to lead and help others.

“I’m very excited that Golden Key has achieved the Gold Standard for the second year in a row,” Veal said.  “Achieving the gold standard means the Texas Tech chapter has exhibited leadership, service, and rigorous academic skills that are required by the national chapter.”
