Alpha Sigma, Gannon University's chapter of the Lambda Sigma Honor Society,  was recognized as the 2013 Outstanding Chapter in the nation for the achievements of the 2012-2013 executive board.

Each year, Lambda Sigma recognizes Honor Chapters. The National Executive Board selects chapters for their general excellence and achievement. Honor Chapter status is given to chapters that satisfactorily complete the national requirements, made outstanding contributions to the campus and/or community and participated in the national activities of Lambda Sigma.

The Lambda Sigma Honor Society is a sophomore honor society. It promotes superior academic achievement, fosters leadership and provides service to the university and community. Nationally, 39 chapters participate in the honor society at various universities across the United States.

Nancy Kujawinski, the adviser for Lambda Sigma, said that Alpha Sigma deserved the recognition they received for all their hard work and dedication.

"This year's chapter is very deserving of Honor chapter status," Kujawinski said. "They were diligent in completing requirements and going above and beyond what was required.

The executive board included Julia Leix, president; Heather Wilson, vice president; Nicole McAllister, secretary; Samantha Czerniak, treasurer; and Jenny Amann, service chair.
