Knight Grand Cross recipients

Grand College of Rites - Knight Grand Cross Jewel

The Knight Grand Cross is the highest honor bestowed by the Grand College of Rites of the United States of America.  The KGC is awarded in recognition of meritorious service beyond that usually expected of a Fellow.  No one may apply for this rank and decoration.

It is awarded solely by nomination from the Most Illustrious Grand Chancellor including a brief statement of specific services rendered in behalf of the Grand College of Rites.  This nomination then requires election by the Fellows present during the annual convocation.
