Florida State redshirt sophomore quarterback Wyatt Sexton will be inducted into the Golden Key International Honor Society Tuesday evening. Sexton, who will make his first career start this weekend against North Carolina, will not be able to attend the ceremony due to his football obligations. Sexton carries a 3.77 GPA in communication studies and has been recognized as the top academic performer in his class for football over his first two years at FSU. He will be one of 300 Florida State students inducted into Golden Key at the ceremony.
“I have always made academics a priority,” said Sexton. “You have to find a balance between athletics and academics and that’s something I’ve been able to do throughout my career in high school and in college. This is a great honor and it’s something I’m very proud of.”
The Golden Key International Honor Society selects member by invitation only. Membership is limited to no more than the top 15% of the juniors and seniors enrolled at Florida State. Members must be at least a junior (60 semester hours), have a minimum GPA of 3.5 (out of 4.0), and have completed at least 25 of the credit hours at FSU. Part-time as well as full-time students from all majors may qualify, and membership is open to both traditional and nontraditional students.
Golden Key International Honor Society was founded at Georgia State University on November 29, 1977 by a group of highly motivated undergraduate students. Since that time, Golden Key has established itself as a positive force in higher education. The Society has 270 collegiate chapters at major colleges and universities in the United States, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Australia, Malaysia, and Canada. In addition, more than 800,000 lifetime members and 11,000 honorary members are proud of their association with this dynamic organization. To date, well over $2,000,000 in scholarships have been awarded to outstanding members.
