Baylor University's Golden Key International Honor Society was awarded "Most Improved Chapter" at the August 2002 Golden Key International Convention, "Silver and Gold: 25 Years with Golden Key," in Atlanta.

Chapters active for at least one year who have dramatic overall improvements in their level of leadership and involvement are eligible for the award, which is presented to a select few chapters around the world.

Dr. Randy Wood, director of the Baylor Center for Christian Education and the group's adviser, accepted the award before more than 1,200 international delegates at the Golden Key Awards Luncheon.

The Golden Key International Honor Society was established in 1977 in Atlanta to recognize the academic successes of college upperclassmen, as well as leadership, community service, career networks and scholarships. Golden Key has 320 chapters in the United States, Australia, Great Britain, Canada, Malaysia, South Africa and New Zealand.

Membership is open by invitation to juniors and seniors in the top 15 percent of their class.
