SALUTE National Honor Society for Veterans
Clover Park Technical College recently became the latest chapter of the SALUTE National Honor Society for Veterans, recognizing veterans, active duty, National Guard and reservists for achieving academic success.
SALUTE (Service, Academics, Leadership, Unity, Tribute and Excellence) was established in 2009 and is based out of Colorado State University. It is the first National Honor Society established for student veterans and active duty military enrolled in 2-year and 4-year institutions of higher education.
The honor society includes a four-tier GPA system designed to encourage student veterans to strive to improve their GPA and advance to a higher level during their academic careers. The GPA levels are Alpha (3.75-4.0), Bravo (3.5-3.74), Charlie (3.25-3.49) and Delta (3.0-3.24).
For more information about becoming a member of SALUTE, please contact the CPTC Veterans Navigator at (253) 589-5966 or visit the Veterans Resource Center in Building 2, Room 109.
