Spring 2021 Alpha Sigma Lambda Inductions

Alpha Sigma Lambda Honor Society congratulates our new inductees on their academic accomplishments. Thank you to all of our chapter councilors for helping us honor these amazing students, their hard work and achievements during these turbulent times.

“Just as despair can come to one only from other human beings, hope, too, can be given to one only by other human beings.”

Eta Chi

On the evening of May 14, 2021 the Eta Chi Chapter inducted its newest members into the Alpha Sigma Lambda National Honor Society. Some public health protocols required by the outbreak of Covid-19 were still in effect and once again did not stop our celebration and acknowledgment of our adult students’ accomplishments. We were able to hold the celebration in-person at our beautiful historic Hoffman House. Chapter Councilor, Jane Hudak, opened this joyous occasion with the support of honorary ASL members, Associate Dean Gregg Scully and Director of Admissions and Student Success, Lisa Lewis, along with Associate Dean, Michael Miller. A.J. Lemheney, Ed.D., Vice President and Executive Director of the College of Graduate and Continuing Education (GCE), addressed the group and shared the sometimes overwhelming obstacles adult learners must overcome in their quest for furthering their education and potential. The 2021 honorary inductee, Amy Enders, Adjunct Business Administration Professor for GCE, was acknowledged for her contribution to her many students. This is best illustrated in a quote submitted by one of them for her nomination. “Amy helped me see the potential in new career possibilities. She guided me and made career suggestions that I would have never considered prior. I’m thankful for her style of teaching, feedback, and help to see a road full of new possibilities”. It’s with great pride that we welcome our seven new members and wish them all the best in their exciting futures.
