The University of Wyoming’s senior honor society has selected 47 new members for the 2018-19 academic year.
Mortar Board is a national honor society that recognizes college seniors for outstanding achievement in scholarship, leadership and service. It provides opportunities for continued leadership development, promotes service to colleges and universities, and encourages lifelong contributions to the global community.
The UW Cap and Gown Chapter of Mortar Board was chartered in 1933. UW chapter members participate in many projects and activities throughout the year, both on the UW campus and in the Laramie community.
During last month’s initiation ceremony, Kent Noble, the Bill Daniels Chair of Business Ethics at UW, served as the keynote speaker.
Additionally, the UW chapter presented three awards to recognize distinguished scholarship, leadership and service. Jennifer Kirk, Wyoming Union associate director, received the Outstanding Service and Dedication Award. Marci Smith, a senior lecturer in the Division of Kinesiology and Health, was the recipient of the Outstanding Advisor Award. Japheth Frauendienst, of Cheyenne, received the Outstanding Sophomore Award.
