USAO Initiates 20 Alpha Lambda Delta Students
CHICKASHA -- At a recent luncheon with families and faculty members, 20 freshmen were initiated into the Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society at the University of Science and Arts.
" These students represent the best of our freshman class," said Dr. Peter Thomas, associate professor of education/science and faculty advisor for the honor society. " We're very proud of these students and their achievements."
