EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire 2002-03 Mortar Board Chapter, Gold Caps, received the National Silver Torch Award at the 2003 National Mortar Board Conference in Columbus, Ohio. The award was presented to senior Julie Brown, Bloomington, Minn., vice president for Gold Caps for 2003-04.

Gold Caps became a campus organization at UW-Eau Claire in 1970, and was granted a national charter by Mortar Board in 1976. The purpose of Gold Caps is to promote college loyalty, to advance the spirit of service and fellowship, to promote and maintain a high standard of scholarship, and to recognize and encourage leadership. Membership is based on service, scholarship and leadership and is open to students who are currently enrolled in their fifth full-time semester, whose cumulative grade average is within the top 35 percent of the class, and who have demonstrated leadership abilities in service to the University and/or community.
