UW-Eau Claire honor society chapter wins national award

| Gary Johnson

A University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire honor society for high-achieving students again is among the top-performing chapters in the country.

The UW-Eau Claire chapter of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars is one of 10 university chapters to be named a platinum chapter winner. More than 300 NSCS chapters are active across the U.S.

Dr. Der-Fa Lu, professor of nursing, was impressed with chapter members when she attended several NSCS activities as the new faculty advisor for UW-Eau Claire’s chapter.

“I witnessed the strong leadership and excellence of student performance,” Lu says. “I am not surprised with the award to support our student members. I only wish that more UWEC students were willing to take the opportunity that NSCS offers.”

Scott Mobley, NSCS executive director, pointed out that NSCS chapters had to overcome many challenges the COVID-19 pandemic presented to college students’ lives over the past year.

“From attending school on campus, hybrid or remote to having to recruit and make chapter activities still happen, we respect and appreciate the hard work these chapters put in this past year,” Mobley says. “These chapters exemplify the best of what it means to be an NSCS scholar.”
