The Mortar Board chapter at Xavier University recently received a national award from Mortar Board, the premier national
honor society for college seniors.
The D'Artagnan chapter at Xavier University was among the outstanding Mortar Board chapters to be recognized at the 2012 Mortar Board National Conference, held in Chicago in late July this past summer.
Xavier's chapter received the Silver Torch Award, which is presented to chapters that execute
timeliness and dedication while simultaneously exemplifying
the ideals of scholarship, leadership and service.
Recipients are selected based on a review of national records that require that the chapter meet all of the national minimum standards
and deadlines.
Chapter President Rebecca Engle accepted the chapter's award.
Since its founding in 1918, the Society has grown from four to 229 chartered collegiate chapters with more than a quarter-million members across the nation.
The D'Artagnan chapter at Xavier University was chartered in 1994 and currently has 35 members.
Mortar Board provides opportunities
for continued leadership development, promotes service to colleges and universities and encourages
lifelong contributions to the global community.
Some notable Mortar Board members include pioneering engineer
Lillian Gilbreth, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, Emmy-winning actor Rue McClanahan, astronauts Judith Resnik and Janice Voss, adventurer
Aron Ralston and lifestyle
expert Bruce Littlefield.
