Member Emma on how Mortar Board creates a strong community

“Mortar Board is an honor society with an esteemed and honorable history, one that values the service and quality of their members, rather than the quantity. Acceptance into Mortar Board requires academic success, as well as a strong background in service and extracurricular activities. Additionally, Mortar Board seeks members with leadership skills, great accountability, and a passion to support each other and the community around us. These qualities differ from honor societies seeking high numbers of students based on GPA. As a member, it is reassuring to know the hard work in the classroom, as well as outside the classroom, can be recognized through Mortar Board. Finally, Mortar Board has connected me with incredible people, with the same passions and dedication as those I value.”
