Excelsior, according to our Ritual, is striving for those things that are highest and noblest in an effort to be ever advancing. It is represented by the star adorning our badges which is meant to be a star of hope and guidance. The FarmHouse Excelsior program seeks to do the same. As the star serves as a guide for each member, the FarmHouse Excelsior program shall serve as a guide for each chapter as a whole.
FarmHouse Excelsior is a cornerstone assessment program designed to be simple and multifaceted for chapter, advisor, headquarter and campus professional use. It helps the chapter determine goals that are most urgent and effective for the growth of that chapter, it helps advisors hold chapters accountable and it helps headquarters staff to quickly understand the chapter’s needs and gather resources to help in the effort. Overall, it gives each entity a common language so that we can ensure that every step we take is a step in the same direction. For a complete description of each achievement, CLICK HERE.
