UIS hosts Good as Gold Ceremony to honor local volunteers

The first ever Good as Gold Ceremony, a partnership between UIS and the Junior League of Springfield, drew about 275 people to honor more than 50 local volunteers who have made an impact on the community.

Members of the UIS community were among those being honored with UIS Student Star Award, UIS Staff Star Award, Heart of Gold Awards and awards for outstanding community service.

The ceremony was featured in an April 24, 2009, article in the State Journal-Register.
