MANHATTAN -- Outstanding scholastic achievement by students in communication studies at Kansas State University has earned them membership into Lambda Pi Eta, a national honor society for communication studies.

National requirements for student membership include at least a 3.0 cumulative grade point average with 60 semester- or 90 quarter-credit hours completed. K-State's chapter also offers associate membership to freshmen and sophomores who have not yet met the credit-hour criteria but who do have the required grade point average and are interested in working toward membership in Lambda Pi Eta.

Along with recognizing scholastic excellence, the society builds relationships between faculty and students, and supports the communication studies field through professional development, exchange of ideas and exploration of graduate education.

New Lambda Pi Eta members and associate members at K-State include:

Haley Lloyd, freshman in communication studies, Cimarron, associate member; Laneah Petitjean, junior in communication studies, Hutchinson; Kristin Slater, sophomore in communication studies, Leawood, associate member; Alicia Roberts, senior in communication studies, Shawnee; and Shannon Scribner, junior in communication studies, Valley Center.

From out of state: Cameron Piercy, sophomore in communication studies and political science, Comanche, Okla.; Amber Stanley, senior in communication studies, Temple, Texas; and Laurie Stewart, sophomore in communication studies, Richmond, Va.
