Over 80 students were initiated into the University of Montevallo’s chapter of national honors organization Alpha Lambda Delta (ALD).
ALD is a national honor society with a mission to encourage superior academic achievement among students in their first year attending institutions of higher education.
“Being inducted into ALD is just the first accomplishment for this group of students,” said Randi Tubbs, Montevallo’s ALD chapter adviser. “They will go on to join other honor societies and clubs and will carve out a place at UM, while making a difference on campus and in their communities.”
Eligibility for membership in ALD is based on students having a grade point average of 3.5 or better during their first semester of college while enrolled full-time.
According to the honor society’s website, ALD additionally “seeks to promote intelligent living and a continued high standard of learning, and to assist students in recognizing and developing meaningful goals for their roles in society.”
The following students were newly initiated into ALD this year:
