For those who attended the Presidents’ Leadership Conference in September, you should be very familiar with the organization A Soldier’s Child. For those who did not attend conference, we helped back bags, wrap presents, and held a birthday party for the organization. Well, NBC Nightly News recently did a story on this organization, and they did so from the camp that we packed bags for at conference! So the very beef jerky you brought with you was consumed at this camp! Here’s the video for those who would like to learn more about the organization we helped. If you’d like to know more or would like to help their organization, check their website out at https://asoldierschild.org/.
Well, another National Presidents’ Leadership Conference has come and gone, and we are so thankful for all those who came to Murfreesboro, TN and the campus of Middle Tennessee State University this year! The conference was a great success, and hopefully it has set the stage for great things to happen at all of our chapters across the country.
On Friday night of the conference we were fortunate to participate in a service activity for A Soldier’s Child, an organization whose “mission is to serve the children of fallen military personnel who have given their lives on active duty while defending the United States of America.” We wrapped presents, packed camp bags, and held a birthday party for two of the organization’s participants, Ashton and Desiree. A great time was had by all, and our birthday boy Ashton taught everyone how to “dab.”
Saturday we went over to the campus of MTSU to learn more about the organization, bylaws, and rituals of Lambda Sigma. It was a long day filled with lots of information, but hopefully everyone left with a greater understanding of what Lambda Sigma is all about and how to successfully run their chapters.
We ended Saturday with our traditional banquet and observance of the Gift of Fellowship. We were delighted to hear from our Jane Price Harmon Gift of Honor recipient for 2017, Dr. Ron Wolfe, as he retires from Lambda Sigma’s National Executive Board after nearly three decades of service. We also recognized the Honor Chapters for 2016-2017 and our annual winners for Outstanding Chapter (Alpha – University of Pittsburgh), Most Improved Chapter (Alpha Phi – Ferrum College), and Outstanding Advisor (Kevin Cuccia, Chi – Louisiana Tech University).
Sunday we bid farewell to Tennessee, and everyone went back home a little tired but a little more knowledgeable about Lambda Sigma National Honor Society. As we move into the heart of the 2017-2018 year, we encourage our chapters to set lofty goals for service and enjoy fellowship with one another. The year of active membership is short, but it can be an extremely rewarding and wonderful time!
Best of luck to all chapters this year, and we will see you all next year, September 21-23, in Pittsburgh!
Welcome to all of our new Lambda Sigma members joining us for the 2017-2018 academic year! We are very excited to have you as part of our family, and we look forward to the great things you are going to do on your campus and in your communities this coming year.
By now you have all elected your executive board members for the coming year, and this fall all chapter presidents will be convening in Murfreesboro, Tennessee on the campus of Middle Tennessee State University to learn more about leading their chapters. Take a brief moment to watch this video below from two of our former student representatives with tips on getting your year started on the right foot.
Welcome again to Lambda Sigma National Honor Society, and congratulations on joining an elite group of people who can call themselves members of this fantastic organization!
We’re proud to release our new edition of The Diamond for spring 2017, available now online here: The Diamond. Please feel free to share with your chapters. Printed copies will be mailed to all advisors for your use and pleasure. These are great to use at recruiting events to show potential members what Lambda Sigma is all about. You might also send a copy to colleagues at a school and let them know they should start a Lambda Sigma chapter on their campus, too!
The fall 2017 edition of The Diamond will come out in November. Do you have an interesting idea for an article? Is there an extraordinary member you’d like to showcase? Are you taking a trip abroad this summer and want to tell others about it? Send your article submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org and they might make it in the next edition!
