On Friday May 11, 2012, the California State University, Fresno Chapter of the Golden Key International Honour Society was pleased to award Allison Chu, a University High School (UHS) student, with a certificate and a $250 scholarship check. Allison was one of thirteen students who participated in the essay contest sponsored by the Fresno State Chapter of Golden Key.
The essay contest was open to all graduating UHS seniors who submitted a personal statement that they planned to use as part of their college application packet. The essay contest not only allowed the students to practice writing a personal statement it also provided the local GK Chapter an opportunity to conduct an on campus literacy project to meet one of its GK chapter standards.
