Outstanding Achievement: Wittenberg Honor Society recognized for outstanding achievement in scholarship, leadership and service
Wittenberg University's chapter of Mortar Board, a national honor society for college seniors who demonstrate outstanding achievement in scholarship, leadership and service, has been awarded the national organization's Silver Torch Award. Presented annually, the award honors chapters that make significant accomplishments in these three areas in addition to fulfilling all national criteria and deadlines.
Led by President Evan Barnard, class of 2017 of Wooster, Ohio, Wittenberg's chapter of Mortar Board currently has 26 members. The events hosted by Mortar Board that helped that chapter garner the Silver Torch Award included a book drive, a community cleanup, random acts of kindness days, and a "Last Lecture" Series.
