Jennifer Wood, Ohio University, is Alpha Lambda Delta's 1,000,000th Lifetime Member!

Since 1924, Alpha Lambda Delta has celebrated the success of more than one million exceptional collegians.  At the April 6th induction ceremony for the Ohio University (Athens, Ohio) chapter of ALD, Jennifer Wood was recognized as ALD's one-millionth lifetime member.  The Society's millionth member took her initiation oath during the Society's 90th Anniversary year, giving ALD a second milestone to celebrate in 2014.

Congratulations to Jennifer and to all of ALD's new members in 2014!


Flame correction:

In the recently-released 2014 edition of the Flame, there is an error on page 13 - the first paragraph under the "University of Arkansas at Fort Smith" heading is actually the final paragraph of the University of Alabama's chapter report.  The UA-Ft. Smith article starts at the beginning of page 14.  We apologize to both the University of Alabama and the University of Arkansas-Ft. Smith chapters for the mixup!

On page 53, the University of Portland was accidentally omitted from the "List of Active Chapters."  We apologize to the University of Portland chapter and to their members for the error.
