Garnet and Gold Scholar Society welcomes 12 new members

Florida State University President Eric J. Barron has inducted 12 students into the Garnet and Gold Scholar Society.

The prestigious academic society, created by Barron in 2011, recognizes outstanding undergraduate students each semester. Garnet and Gold Scholars are acknowledged for meeting membership criteria of excelling in at least three of five key areas — leadership, internship, service, international study and research — both within and outside of the classroom.

“This fall’s group of inductees included one student from the Panama City campus, a student who plans to work for the Peace Corps in Africa and a future medical student,” said FSU Vice President for Student Affairs Mary Coburn. “The Garnet and Gold Scholars are a unique and special niche group, representing the best of the best at Florida State.”
