Clayton State Recognized at Golden Key International Conference

Clayton State University, Associate Dean of Students Jeff Jacobs, and Assistant Director of Orientation and New Student Programs Barbre Skwira were recently recognized by the Golden Key International Honour Society for their efforts on behalf of the University’s Golden Key chapter.

The honor came at the 2009 Golden Key International Conference in Orlando, Fla., wherein Clayton State’s chapter was recognized for having achieved good chapter standing, meaning that the University’s chapter had completed the appropriate amount of activities needed to stay active within the Society. Jacobs and Skwira are the co-advisors to the Clayton State chapter.

“The advisor(s) and student members are actively involved in promoting Golden Key’s mission of recognizing outstanding academic achievement and connecting high-achieving individuals locally, regionally and globally with lifetime opportunity, reward and success,” reads Golden Key’s letter of citation to Clayton State.

Golden Key International Honour Society is the world’s premier collegiate honor society, with nearly two million members and more than 375 chapters around the world. Golden Key was founded in 1977 by a group of undergraduate students at Georgia State University. Since its inception, Golden Key has been established as a positive force in higher education. Membership to this academic achievement organization is granted by invitation only and requires the achievement and maintenance of high academic standards. Golden Key is not only an academic achievement organization, but is also involved in community and university service, thus providing many opportunities for the members to gain valuable experience.

The Clayton State chapter was established in the fall of 2006 and was originally recognized as a “benefits only” chapter. On Feb. 17, 2008, the Clayton State chapter was officially chartered and recognized as the 358th Golden Key Chapter world-wide. Invitation to join Golden Key is only extended to the top 15 percent of the sophomore, junior and senior classes at Clayton State.

A unit of the University System of Georgia, Clayton State University is an outstanding comprehensive metropolitan university located 15 miles southeast of downtown Atlanta.
