Honoring Scholarship and Leadership

Gardner-Webb University recently recognized students for their academic and leadership achievements.

The GWU Gamma Beta Upsilon Chapter of Alpha Sigma Lambda recognized 16 new members from GOAL—DCP. Alpha Sigma Lambda was established in 1946 to honor superior scholarship and leadership in adult students. It is the largest and oldest chapter-based honor society for full and part-time adult students, with chapters at more than 250 colleges and universities. The GWU honorees included students majoring in human services, business administration, criminal justice, healthcare management, accounting, education and computer information systems.

Alpha Chi, a national collegiate honor society, inducted 37 new members from various GWU undergraduate academic programs, such as nursing, mathematics, finance, economics, biblical studies, American Sign Language, accounting, fine arts, Spanish, biology, music education, psychology, English, exercise science, middle grades education, global studies, missiology, healthcare management and international business. 

Alpha Chi promotes academic excellence and exemplary character among college and university students and honors those who achieve such distinction.

The GWU North Carolina Zeta Chapter of Alpha Chi was established in 1972.
