Congrats to Gamma Lambda Chapter!

Submitted by Denise Portillo, the former President of Gamma Lambda Chapter and the current President, Rosa Escalante. At the end of every academic year our university, The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), holds the SOLhonors awards. At this event student organizations are honored for the work they have done throughout the year. At UTEP there are approximately over 200+ student organizations and many of us submit applications for the awards. For the 2018-2019 academic year school year Gamma Lambda Chapter was the recipient of four awards. They are as follows:

2019 Student Organization of the Year (This indicates that out of all the organizations at UTEP we are #1)

2019 Gold Standard Organization (Only 5 organizations are awarded this status, this is the 2nd year we have earned this status)

2019 Collegiate RSO of the Year- Health Sciences (2nd year we have been named the best organization at our specific college)

2019 Category RSO of the Year- Honor Society (This is a new category introduced this year)

None of this would have been possible without our amazing members, Dr. Mangadu, our wonderful faculty advisor, and of course National ESG. On behalf of Rosa and myself, we hope we have made the #GAMFAM proud.
