I’m sure many of you were a part of the National Honor Society and/or National Junior Honor Society (in middle school). Well, Hanover has honor societies as well! One is called Alpha Lambda Delta. This is an honor society for first year students. To be a member, students must have a 3.5 GPA during their first semester here (which means you are on Dean’s List). This honor society was founded in 1924 and is a national society.
This weekend, there was an initiation ceremony. Thirty-five members were inducted into Alpha Lambda Delta at Hanover! This is quite exciting, since we have such a small school and Hanover is a hard school to get onto the Dean’s List; it is exciting that 35 freshman made Dean’s List in their first semester.
Initiation was short, yet informative, with our parents in attendance. We received our Alpha Lambda Delta pins and a certificate that says we are members. The president and several other officers were there helping with the initiation and informing us of the society’s mission and other information about it.
“The mission of Alpha Lambda Delta is to support academic achievements, to promote a high standard of learning, and to assist students in recognizing and developing meaningful goals for their unique roles in society.” This honor society also gives out scholarships to its members every year.
Anyway, good luck finishing out your senior year! You are almost there! So, remember take a deep breath because it only gets better from here!
