Last Thursday and Friday, American Public University System (APUS) hosted its annual commencement recognizing all students who graduated over the previous 12 months. While degrees and diplomas are conferred and distributed quarterly, we have held an annual commencement ceremony in the Washington, DC area for more than a decade.
This past summer, American Public University System established a chapter of the Golden Key International Honour Society. The Society was founded in 1977 with the intention of recognizing high-achieving students from around the world and across all academic disciplines for their academic excellence. Offering membership to only the top fifteen percent of college and university sophomores, juniors, seniors, and grad students, an invitation to become a member of Golden Key is a laudable distinction.
