Cardinal Key recruiting

Cardinal Key National Honor Society will begin recruitment for the fall semester on Sunday, Sept. 26.

The organization has already sent out emails to the women on campus who qualify for recruitment this semester.

The organization recognizes achievement in extracurricular activities and strives to provide service in leadership training within the college community.

Cardinal Key is a service-oriented honor society. Members of the organization often are involved with many on campus events including candle lighting, commencement exercises for both fall and spring and Relay for Life.

Another big event that Cardinal Key participates in is Homecoming.

“We play a big role in homecoming each year by sponsoring Big Man on Campus,” said Historian Jenna Blakely. “All the proceeds go to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, which is our National Philanthropy.”

Each Cardinal Key recruit is chosen by junior standing and GPA minimal requirements as well as extracurricular involvement.

Once candidates have completed the recruitment process, they will be contacted if they accepted, said Blakely.

New members must then pay membership fees, which include chords at graduation.

“We as present members look forward to meeting any new potential Cardinal Key member during the social, fun and casual recruitment events,” said Blakely.
