Alpha Lambda Delta
2006-2007, 2010-2011, 2014-2015: ALD Order of the Torch
"The Order of the Torch is the annual award for the most outstanding chapters of Alpha Lambda Delta in the nation. Each year, up to five chapters may be awarded the Order of the Torch." A single chapter can receive the Order of the Torch award only once every four years, which means we will be eligible to apply for the award again in 2019.
2008-2010, 2012-2014: ALD Maintaining the Flame
"Chapters who are awarded the Order of the Torch are ineligible to apply for the award for the next four years. To reward chapters that have continued to excel in programming, activities, and service, the National Council awards the Maintaining the Flame award to chapters who are ineligible for the Torch."
2014: Delta Silver Award
This award recognizes that for the year 2014, our total membership percentage increase from the previous year was between 25 and 49%. Chapters that receive the Delta award receive discounts at the ALD national store.
2013: Best Chapter T-Shirt
This award is exactly what it sounds like: in 2013, we were recognized for having the best chapter t-shirt! We hope to win this award again in the future.
