The Schreiner University chapter of Alpha Lambda Delta National Honor Society for First Year Students has been awarded the Gold Membership Award by the national organization.

The membership award is presented to chapters that show a notable increase in membership during a single year. The Schreiner chapter membership saw an increase of 35 percent during the 2006-2007 academic year.

"We appreciate this recognition by the national Alpha Lambda Delta organization and are proud to have such an outstanding group of young scholars representing Schreiner University,” said Peg Layton, Schreiner’s vice president for enrollment and student services and dean of students.

Alpha Lambda Delta is a national honor society that recognizes and encourages academic excellence among first year students. Today, Alpha Lambda Delta has more than 250 chapters throughout the United States and more than $750,000 students have been initiated into membership since the first chapter was started more than 80 years ago.

Membership in Alpha Lambda Delta is open to full-time freshmen students who earn a scholastic average of 3.5 or better at a four-year college or university.
