MILTON'S GOLDEN KEY
Michael Milton was one of five people, including Kevin Rudd, presented with an honorary membership to the Golden Key International Honour Society at a reception in Canberra last week.
Milton is the first sportsperson to be honoured by the ANU chapter, joining a long list of largely politicians and academics. Internationally, Golden Key has more than 8000 honorary members, including former US president Bill Clinton, retired swimmer Ian Thorpe, Sir Desmond Tutu and the Governor-General of Australia, Major General Michael Jeffery.
Golden Key is a global academic honour society which recognises and encourages scholastic achievement and excellence among college and university students from all academic disciplines. The Society awards its members over $400,000 annually through 15 different scholarship and award programs.
Members are connected to exclusive career opportunities and assistance through Golden Key's partnerships with major corporations and graduate programs. The Society provides campus and community service opportunities enabling personal growth and leadership development as well as collaborating with university faculty and administrators to develop and maintain high standards of education.
