Communication Honor Society Inducts New Members
HIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 4, 2012 â€“ High Point Universityâ€™s chapter of Lambda Pi Eta, the National Communication Associationâ€™s honor society, held a ceremony to induct more than 40 students into the chapter.
The ceremony honored students who have completed rigorous coursework and maintained a high GPA. The initiates took a pledge to honor the societyâ€™s three core building blocks: character, credibility and ethics, which are based on Aristotleâ€™s â€śRhetoric.â€ť
The society was established at HPU in 2009 and the members have volunteered in the community with â€śReading Connections,â€ť a service group that works with adults in Guilford County to improve literacy skills. Members have served as mentors and provided tutoring services through the program.
â€śIâ€™m honored to serve as faculty adviser to the HPU Lambda Pi Eta chapter,â€ť says Dr. Nahed Eltantawy, assistant professor of journalism. â€śI hope all LPH inductees will stay active by organizing and contributing to various communication-related activities, such as workshops, lectures and research.â€ť
