Senior Brittney Young recently became the newest member inducted into Cheyney University's Lambda Pi Eta (LPH) Communication National Honor Society--Omega Pi Chapter in the Spring 2013 Induction Ceremony.  The 3rd annual induction was held on Tuesday, March 12, 2013 at 6 pm in Duckrey Social Sciences Building Student Lounge.

Brittney's parents and several relatives were on hand to witness the communications major take her pledge, light her candle and sign the honorary book which each inductee has the privilege to sign. Co-Advisors Dr. Pamela Poe and Public Relations Director Gwen Owens led the ceremony with help from LPH President Crystal Mann and LPH Secretary Nikaya Johnson, both seniors.  Flautist Sue Edwards and Pianist Randy Poe added a touch of elegance with their beautiful music.

Dr. Poe, Assistant Professor of Communication Arts and Coordinator of CU's Communication Arts Program, gave the keynote address, telling Brittney and her fellow members to continue to always do their best, seize the moment and make their mark in the communication field.  Dr. Poe even shared a meditation message in song --inspired by American poet e.e. cummings--with music that she wrote and sang herself.

CU's LPH chapter, started by Owens in Fall 2010 when she was teaching communication classes, is part of a network of over 400 student undergraduate chapters nationwide, representing some of the finest communication scholars in the nation. Lambda Pi Eta members have a long and distinguished record of excellence in both communication academics and campus service.

CU's LPH members are busy with service projects as the semester winds down.  Look for the seniors to wear their red and white honors cords with great pride at Commencement in May.
