I fell in love with the Phi Beta Kappa maxim “The Love of Learning is the Guide of Life.” What better reward for us, the members of our Association, than seeing the smiling faces of high school seniors who have been selected by our High School Award Committee to receive our Phi Beta Kappa Certificate of Recognition – and a check! — for their outstanding academic and extracurricular activities.
The pleasure of the Award Recipients is reflected in the pride of their families who attend our Ceremony. The symbol of our Phi Beta Kappa Key on their Certificate of Recognition will be for them a guide throughout their college years.
The reward for our donors to our High School Program may appear four years later when one of “our” students made it into Phi Beta Kappa! That is what excites me, inspires me, and the more awards we can give the happier we ourselves can be.
