ASHEVILLE, NC – UNC Asheville’s chapter of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS) recently received the Gold Award at the NSCS Honor Gala in Washington, D.C. The chapter received the award for meeting a series of requirements, including holding an induction ceremony, creating a student mentoring program, holding campuswide events to support the NSCS integrity initiative, creating an on-campus membership recruitment campaign and engaging a campus office in a chapter event.
The UNC Asheville chapter also received a $250 scholarship. The group was among just 61 other NSCS chapters nationwide to receive the Gold Award and scholarship this year.
“The members of the UNC Asheville chapter are amazing,” said Blair Edwards, an NSCS staff representative. “They have truly embraced the ideals of NSCS.”
