I have been involved with the Honors Program at Gardner-Webb since I first stepped foot on campus - initially, it was for scholarship opportunities and academic benefits, but I quickly got involved with the Honors Student Association (HSA), which is all about three things: spirit, service, and socializing.
That last "s" may sound funny, but the HSA does an excellent job of planning events for students to partake in. In fact, as a previous member of the Honors Executive Committee I can say that a lot of planning goes into these events. The executive committee takes into consideration previous participation rates for student activities, what students are interested in currently, and community needs. Last year, I served as a Freshman Representative. My main responsibility was to create the Honors float and banner for homecoming. In addition, I was responsible for relaying information to the freshman honor’s students and encouraging participation in our events.
Being involved with Honors has truly been a wonderful experience and has introduced me to many friends here at Gardner-Webb. I am beyond thankful for the opportunity I have had to be involved with the Honor’s program and would recommend it to any student wishing to be more active in the school and the community of Boiling Springs!
