Northwestern State University’s Chapter of Blue Key Honor Society inducted 29 new members and recognized new officers. Blue Key Honor Society is a premier honor society that recognizes students at institutions of higher education for balanced and all-around excellence in scholarship, leadership and service. Blue Key Honor Society bases its eligibility for membership on all-around leadership and integrity in student life, high scholastic achievement and service to others.
New Officers are Blake Chustz, president; Jesus Bravo, vice president;
Koral Richard, secretary; Adreanna Thrift, treasurer, and Mary Scruggs, volunteer coordinator.
NSU’s Blue Key chapter was established in 1959. Chapter activities include flower sales at graduation and service to the NSU campus and Natchitoches community. The chapter will be participating in the KSLA-TV toy drive December 8 and is currently making plans to collaborate with other honor societies on campus to host Honors Week in the spring.
