|Greg Patton receives national award from Mortar Board|
Greg Patton, advisor to the UND chapter of Mortar Board, and professor of management, was awarded the organization’s Excellence in Advising Award for the 2005-2006 academic year alongside three distinguished advisors from across the nation.
By participating, volunteering and going above and beyond the duties of an advisor, Dr. Patton has become a vital part of the success of the chapter in less than two years of advising. With the help of Patton, the University was one of only 40 chapters to receive the Silver Torch Award, an award for excellence and timeliness in exemplifying the ideals of scholarship, leadership and service. Additionally, the chapter was among 27 recipients of the Project Excellence Award, receiving it for their 26th Annual Turkey Basket Drive.
The Quo Vadis chapter president Kari Nelson explained that Patton “presents a positive atmosphere to our climate of living and learning. He sets an excellent example for all Mortar Board members.”
Mortar Board is a national honor society that recognizes college seniors for outstanding achievement in scholarship, leadership and service. Since its founding in 1918, the organization has grown from the four founding chapters to 214 collegiate and 43 alumni chapters with more than 240,000 initiated members across the nation. The Quo Vadis chapter at the University was chartered in 1971.
