Area Student Accomplishments
Travis Rinkenberger, a 2011 Morris Area graduate, has been initiated into the Mortar Board Honor Society at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, N.D. He is the son of Peg and David Rinkenberger of Morris.
Mortar Board is the premier national honor society recognizing college seniors for superior achievement in scholarship, leadership, and service.
Only a select few students on each campus are invited to join this esteemed society. Mortar Board members are presented with the unique opportunity to join a diverse group of students from vastly different disciplines and interests. Since Mortar Board’s founding in 1918, more than a quarter of a million members have held the honor of being initiated at 229 chartered chapters across the nation.
The society provides its members with opportunities for continued leadership development, promotes service to colleges and universities, and encourages lifelong contributions to the global community.
