West Virginia Wesleyan College’s communication honorary society welcomes new members

BUCKHANNON, West Virginia – The Beta Beta chapter of Lambda Pi Eta welcomed six new members in the Fall Semester at West Virginia Wesleyan College.

On Oct. 10, 2023, the Beta Beta chapter of Lambda Pi Eta at West Virginia Wesleyan College held its Fall 2023 induction ceremony. Jason Wilson, Peter D’Avanzo, Sarah McCall, Danica Propst, Faith Yoho and Alexis Abalos were invited to join the honor society.

Founded in 1988, Lambda Pi Eta is the National Communication Association’s official honor society. Lambda Pi Eta comes from “the three ingredients of persuasion, as described by Aristotle in Rhetoric. Lambda represents logos, which means logic; Pi represents pathos, which represents emotion; and Eta represents ethos, which stands for character, credibility, and ethics.

Membership in Lambda Pi Eta is reserved for students who have declared their interest in the field of communication and have achieved high academic success. To be considered for membership, a student must have completed at least sixty credit hours in undergraduate courses and twelve hours of communication courses. A student must also have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 and a grade point average of 3.25 in their communication classes. A student must also be in the top 35% of their graduating class.

New inductee Danica Propst said, “I was honored to join Lambda Pi Eta after putting in lots of time and energy into communication. It was a really good feeling to be recognized for your accomplishments in that setting.”
