HAMMOND – The Southeastern Louisiana University chapter of the National Society of Collegiate Scholarship has been awarded Bronze STAR status in recognition of its community service, member engagement and campus involvement.
NSCS is an interdisciplinary honors organization for high achieving freshmen and sophomores with more than 300 student-run chapters across the country. Membership is by invitation only and is based on grade point average and class standing.
The Southeastern chapter has more than 1,350 members. Chapter President Jared Magee of Franklinton said the group was recognized for community service activities such as maintaining an adopted street in Hammond and participation in Junior Achiever Day, where members teach elementary school students various life skills.
“We’re proud that our chapter has received this national award,” said Chapter Advisor and Honors Program Director Kent Neuerburg. “It is recognition of not only these students’ high academic achievements but their commitment to making our communities a better place to live and work.”
