2018 MRU GK Honourary Inductes


The Mount Royal University chapter of the Golden Key International Honour Society is the first in Calgary and the second in Alberta. Since 2016, the chapter has welcomed more than 650 members and eight honourary inductees, including Mayor Naheed Nenshi. Membership is by invitation only for the top 15 per cent of students based on academic achievement. Golden Key helps members realize their potential through its three pillars: academics, service and leadership.

Project Overview

Leading up to our chapter's New Member Recognition Event in November 2018, I collected information and headshots for our Honourary Inductees to create profiles. These individuals have been invited to speak at the event and become part of our chapter.

I scheduled posts for #WisdomWednesday in the weeks leading up to this event on our chapter's Facebook page. These profiles were meant to introduce these significant individuals to our member base and encourage the new members to attend NMRE 2018.
