Student Spotlight

Charlotte Passero
State University of New York - Fredonia

Charlotte is the ALD president at SUNY Fredonia and a summer student assistant at the National Office. Chapter Advisor Erin Mroczka said, “Charlotte is the ideal chapter president. She is conscientious, sets high standards and expectations, and seeks to build partnerships with other student organizations and the community with a huge smile and positive encouragement. Her determination, organization, and enthusiasm sets the tone for the Fredonia chapter and reaffirms our reputation of being responsible learners and community ambassadors.” Executive Director Eileen Merberg commented, “I was excited at the prospect of hiring an actual Alpha Lambda Delta member as a student assistant in the National Office, and Charlotte has not disappointed! Not only can we give her any project to work on and she picks it up right away and runs with it, but her perspective as a chapter officer is invaluable.”

Advisor Spotlight

Dr. Karlea Brunnell-Joiner
Saint Anselm College

Dr. Brunnell-Joiner founded and advises the ALD chapter at Saint Anselm College. She has been a valuable resource to the National Office, and has clearly made the ALD chapter on her campus a top priority. Emily Lowe wrote, "If I had to describe Dr. Joiner in three words, they would be: inviting, willing, and dedicated. Dr. Joiner is involved with so many clubs and activities on campus that we'd be lost without her. She is always thinking of new ways to improve our school and promote scholarship."  Jenna Bisbee added, "Her enthusiasm for Alpha Lambda Delta is contagious. She leads by example while inspiring and teaching students to be the best they can be. Through her hard work, creativity, and passion for ALD, she has helped our chapter to welcome a wonderfully diverse group of honors students."

Habitat for Humanity
Clemson University

The Clemson University chapter of Alpha Lambda Delta strives for academic excellence and promotes community service within Clemson and our surrounding communities. One way we enjoy giving back to others in the local community is by volunteering in Anderson, South Carolina, with Habitat for Humanity. At these events, members of ALD work to build houses for families in need of a safe, affordable place to live. Our members look forward to helping complete the home, from painting the walls to installing cabinets and shelving. We are honored to be able to serve the community, and it always brightens our day when we get to meet the future homeowner at the construction site! In the upcoming year, Clemson ALD plans to continue this wonderful partnership. Go Tigers!
