Shawn C. Mullen of Crestwood has accepted membership in the National Society of Collegiate Scholars and will be honored during a campus ceremony this fall at Southwest Missouri State University.
The National Society of Collegiate Scholars is a highly selective, national, non-profit honors organization.
Founded in 1994, NSCS recognizes first- and second-year undergraduate students who excel academically.
The society was established on the principle that with scholarship comes a responsibility to develop leadership and a duty to perform service.
"NSCS provides the opportunity for students like Shawn to be recognized for their outstanding academic accomplishments early in their college experience,'' Steve Loflin, NSCS executive director, stated in a news release. "Shawn will also have the opportunity to join other high achieving college students in developing leadership skills and a sense of civic responsibility.''
