SPIRE is a National Honor Society dedicated to recognizing adult learners and non-traditional students enrolled in two-year academic institutions. Its purpose is to respect and appreciate the unique achievements of these students as they are highly engaged and motivated to succeed in all aspects of their lives. 

 Membership in SPIRE is offered to students who:

  • Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0
  • Are involved in at least three campus or community activities
  • Are within 12 months of graduation
  • Have demonstrated leadership, persistence, and future promise

MVCC inducts members to the National Chapter of the SPIRE Honors society twice a year (once per semester).
