In November 2012, High Point University’s chapter of Lambda Pi Eta, the National Communication Association’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 society’s three core building blocks: character, credibility and ethics, which are based on Aristotle’s “Rhetoric.”
The society was established at HPU in 2009 and the members have volunteered in the community with “Reading Connections,” 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.
“I’m honored to serve as faculty adviser to the HPU Lambda Pi Eta chapter,” says Dr. Nahed Eltantawy, assistant professor of journalism. “I hope all LPH inductees will stay active by organizing and contributing to various communication-related activities, such as workshops, lectures and research.”
