    Glory to the Green and Whiteby Julia Smith

    Joshua Hamilton – Guest SpeakerJosuha Hamilton is the Keynote Speaker for University Honors Day 2012. Joshua is a senior at UNT, working toward the Bachelor of Science Degree in Kinesiology. Born in College Station, Texas, and raised in the DFW area, Joshua came to the University of North Texas in Fall, 2008. While attending UNT, Joshua has been a leader, having participated in several campus organizations, including NT Forty which he serves as President. Joshua is student teaching this semester and plans to pursue a career as a teacher when he finishes his graduate studies. Congratulations to Joshua Hamilton, Keynote Speaker for Honors Day 2012.

    History of Honors DayHonors Day began in 1950, when the Meritum Chapter of Mortar Board Honor Society held the FIRST academic convocation. Blue Key Honor Society later added a banquet for honorees to accompany the convocation, which continued under the guidance of Mortar Board. The university formally assumed responsibility for all activities of the day in 1972, via proclamation of the president and the president of the student body. Arrangements since that date have been handled by the University Honors and Recognition Committee which is broadly representative of UNT. Honors Day is sponsored jointly by the Division of Student Affairs and the Honors College. The purpose of the Honors Day Convocation is to recognize students who exemplify excellence in academic and leadership pursuits, and to give the University Community an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of these individuals and the wonderful institution of which we are a part.
