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.

We’re delighted to announce our inspiring guest speaker for our 2019 Houston Leadership Summit in July: Linnita Hosten. In true Golden Key fashion, national speaker and author Linnita began a life of service at the age of 19. Serving in various student leadership and community engagement roles, she developed a passion for youth development in the areas of student leadership, character education and real-world readiness.

Being the youngest (sometimes the only) woman in large organizations, board appointments and service roles, Linnita knows a thing or two about being misjudged, overlooked, underestimated and underutilized. Golden Key members will learn first-hand about harnessing strengths, teaching from failures and leveraging organizational knowledge.

The Golden Key Houston 2019 Leadership Summit will take place 25-28 July 2019

For three exciting days in July, we’ll be hosting our Houston 2019 Leadership Summit–and we want YOU to be part of it! During this one thrilling weekend you’ll have the chance to meet new people, hear inspiring talks (like Linnita’s), take part in workshops, join fun activities, and so much more.

Highlights of the summit will include:

  • Connecting and collaborating with other Golden Key chapters
  • Exploring the vibrant city of Houston, Texas
  • Workshops to learn or polish skills to take home with you
  • A service project to give back as a team
  • Mixing and mingling with the brightest young minds across the globe
