School-record eight to be inducted into Golden Chain
GREENSBORO, N.C. – A school-record eight UNCG student-athletes will be inducted into the school’s prestigious Golden Chain Honor Society on Sunday, Oct. 31.
Senior Alissa Beaudway (volleyball), redshirt sophomore Amy Clapper (women’s basketball), senior Andy Clyne (men’s cross country/track), senior Erica Creed (women’s golf), redshirt sophomore Lucy Dougherty (women’s tennis), senior Kimiko Naito (volleyball), redshirt junior Ashley Schnell (women’s cross country/track) and junior Joey Thompson (men’s cross country/track) were all chosen for induction.
The Golden Chain Honor Society seeks to recognize UNCG students for outstanding achievement and service to the university. Founded in 1948, The Golden Chain is unique to the UNCG campus. The seven links of the Golden Chain symbolize the qualities that have always been prerequisite for election to membership: leadership, scholarship, service, tolerance, judgment, magnanimity and character.
Candidates may be nominated by university students, faculty, staff, Golden Chain alumni and honorary members. Candidates must be academic juniors or seniors at UNCG with an overall grade point average of at least 3.25. The Golden Chain Scholarship is awarded annually and is supported by Society projects and donations from Golden Chain alumni and honorary members.
