What are First-Generation Honor Cords?

“First-Generation Honors Cords,” are described as honors cords because it is truly a sign of honor to be First-Generation. You not only overcame obstacles before and during school, but you are a role model to all those in your family and community who are looking to you as the trail blazer to a new life. These cords are given to graduating students as they begin the road to their successful futures. Congratulations!
