University of North Texas Wins MLK Year of Service Award


Golden Key International Honour Society, founded on 29 November 1977, is an academic honor society which recognizes and encourages scholastic achievement and excellence among college and university students from all academic disciplines.

Dallas area Golden Key chapters worked together to complete a Make a Difference Day project on 24 October. The University of North Texas chapter initiated this service event and submitted a story to their Center for Leadership and Service. As a result, the chapter won a $250 award for the most compelling story write-up. The MLK Year of Service is UNT’s program to spotlight the good works done by UNT students, faculty and staff and to provide more information on ways to become involved in the community.
