Alpha Lambda Delta
ALD is largely a service organization of honor students designed to minister to the university and the community. When I say we are designed to minister, I don’t know of any other chapter in the nation that will tell you that ministry is their overarching purpose. That’s what sets our chapter apart from the others. We have a purpose for our service. Our community service is the action-based form of witnessing. LU ALD exists to foster a more positive and Christ-like relationship between the University and Lynchburg and its surrounding communities. They will know we are Christians by our works.
Alpha Lambda Delta is a very active organization. We are an active part of the student body; we hold monthly meetings for all members as well as one or two monthly activities. These activities can range from a fundraiser to community service to a fellowship activity for the members. This past year, we held a few fundraisers, including a cotton candy fundraiser at the Homecoming Parade and football game. At election time, we held a fundraiser you may have seen on campus. We painted cars with election slogans (pro-Bush, of course). We also held a couple fellowship activities, including one in December when we got about 70 Santa letters from the Lynchburg post office and replied to all of them during our Christmas party. We were involved in several community service projects, including Habitat for Humanity, which was a very rewarding experience.
I served as the chapter president this year, and I can honestly tell you that the past year has been one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences I’ve had. I learned leadership on a whole new level and you will too. Believe me, the office of president is no more important than any other office. Each officer must fulfill different obligations and responsibilities that are all important for the success of the chapter. We all had a part in decisions and responsibilities. Officers hold weekly meetings, in which upcoming activities and events are planned and discussed. Being an officer is certainly a responsibility, but it is also very fun. Planning an event for months and then seeing it come to fruition is a very rewarding feeling.
If you choose to become a member of Alpha Lambda Delta, you have the opportunity to serve your peers in a position of leadership. Look over the positions available and pray about it to see if the Lord is leading you to serve in ALD. Please feel free to email me with any questions you have about ALD as a whole or any specific questions about the various leadership roles you can fill in the Liberty chapter of Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society.
