Letter from Board President | Shelley Hintz

Hi Alpha Sigma Lambda Members,

Happy 2020! In this new year, I am excited to begin my new role as President for Alpha Sigma Lambda. At the University of Maryland Global Campus (where I work), I have worked with the local Alpha Sigma Lambda chapter for over ten years, helping to induct thousands of students. For me, Alpha Sigma Lambda’s mission relates to why I come to work every day- to support adult students who make the sacrifices they do to achieve their educational goals. 

Before coming into this role, I served for two years on the Alpha Sigma Lambda Board as the Vice-President.  As a newcomer to the board in 2018, I quickly saw that every member on the board is dedicated to the Honor Society and to serving students.  We take pride in being able to recognize, support, and engage adult students. We have all worked with adult students-and some of us have also been adult students! We know that every moment matters- from handing a student their hard-earned certificate at their induction ceremony to awarding scholarships.  As we move into our 75th year, it is my hope that we can focus on providing more resources for Chapter Councilors and members, on continuing to grow our scholarship fund, and on finding new ways to support adult students.

I hope the new decade is off to a good start for you, especially for those of you who are starting new classes! And I hope to “see” you around our social media pages and groups. If you haven’t already joined them, I encourage you to do so, so that you can stay connected with our community. 

Shelley Hintz

Director of Academic Support and Retention and adjunct instructor at the University of Maryland Global Campus

Mikela A. Mulleneaux | 2019 Scholarship Recipient

Currently serving in the United States Air Force, I am pursuing a Bachelor’s of Science in Computer Networks and Cyber Security through the University of Maryland Global Campus. My passion for the Cyber Security field bloomed upon first enlisting in the service as a systems administrator. Upon completion of my degree, I hope to further my education through IT Certifications as well as obtain a Master’s degree. In my free time, I enjoy producing music, writing, and running. 

“I am so very honored to be a part of the Alpha Sigma Lambda Honor Society and want to thank everyone who gave me this opportunity.”

 

Alpha Sigma Lambda awards scholarships to assist adult learners financially while earning an undergraduate degree. You can help us continue to support nontraditional students by making a donation and provide assistance to other students like Mikela who are on their continuing education journeys. Learn more about Alpha Sigma Lambda Scholarships here.
