World’s largest honor So­ci­ety

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Sher­brooke, Len­noxville

Erica Zucker, a 3rd year El­e­men­tary ed­u­ca­tion stu­dent at Bishop’s Univer­sity, is the re­cip­i­ent of the Com­mu­nity Ser­vice Award from the Golden Key In­ter­na­tional Honor So­ci­ety. The award rec­og­nizes Golden Key mem­bers for out­stand­ing and im­pact­ful ser­vice to the com­mu­nity.

Ms. Zucker was thrilled to re­ceive the $1,000 award, say­ing: “I am truly hon­oured and thank­ful to be the re­cip­i­ent of the Golden Key’s Com­mu­nity Ser­vice Schol­ar­ship Award. I am a strong be­liever in vol­un­teer­ing within my com­mu­nity and this award is fur­ther in­spi­ra­tion to con­tinue giv­ing back to the peo­ple and places that support me in my pur­suits.’’

Miles Turn­bull, Vice-Prin­ci­pal Aca­demic for Bishop’s Univer­sity, con­grat­u­lated Ms. Zucker: ‘’This is a spe­cial honor for one of our top stu­dents. This recog­ni­tion high­lights Erica’s out­stand­ing ser­vice to the com­mu­nity. Her work with the Len­noxville Empty Bowls event and her vol­un­teer­ing in lo­cal schools are par­tic­u­larly note­wor­thy. We are very proud of Erica!’’

Ms. Zucker joined the Golden Key Honor So­ci­ety in the fall of 2013 and then the Bishop’s Ex­ec­u­tive Com­mit­tee shortly there­after as the Chap­ter Web­mas­ter. “Join­ing the Golden Key pro­vided me with mem­ber­ship to a net­work of like-minded schol­ars, both at Bishop’s and in the in­ter­na­tional in­tel­lec­tual com­mu­nity. It has given me ac­cess to op­por­tu­ni­ties, such as con­fer­ences and schol­ar­ships, to en­rich my over­all ex­pe­ri­ence as a stu­dent. I am con­fi­dent that be­ing a mem­ber of the Golden Key will con­tinue to be an as­set in my fu­ture en­deav­ours,” she says.

The So­ci­ety awards more than $1 mil­lion an­nu­ally to high achiev­ing stu­dents around the world.

Golden Key is the world’s largest honor so­ci­ety, with over 2 mil­lion mem­bers and over 400 chap­ters around the world. While mem­ber­ship in Golden Key be­gins with aca­demic ex­cel­lence, the So­ci­ety’s core mis­sion is to en­able mem­bers to re­al­ize their po­ten­tial through three pil­lars: aca­demics, lead­er­ship and ser­vice.
