HOLLAND, Mich. – The Hope College chapter of Mortar Board has again earned multiple honors during the national organization’s annual summer conference.
The awards program recognized activities during the 2013-14 school year. Hope received a “Golden Torch Award” and 25 “Project Excellence” awards, the most of any chapter in the nation. The conference was held Aug. 1 through Aug. 3 in Atlanta, Georgia.
The college’s Alcor chapter of the honorary society has received multiple awards during each of the past several years, including being named the top chapter during the national conference in 2010. There’s a five-year wait before the chapter will be eligible to be considered for the top award again.
The Golden Torch Award honors chapters that have excelled in the areas of scholarship, leadership and service. The Hope chapter was one of the top five Golden Torch Award recipients for the seventh year in a row.
