After an almost two-year hiatus, the Zeta Lambda Chapter at Prairie View A&M University has been working since the summer of 2017 for a strong return. With the help of their advisor, Dr. Suxia Cui, selected President and Vice President, Kayla Robert and David Hooey, started their mission by selecting a solid Executive Board that would impark on a great mission of bringing the honor society back to the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at PVAMU.
On February 5th, 2018 the Zeta Lambda Chapter of Eta Kappa Nu National Honor Society held a Welcome Meeting for all eligible members. The meeting consisted of not just meeting the E-Board and notifying students of how they could be a part of Eta Kappa Nu, but also introducing a new generation of students to this wonderful organization. The Welcome Meeting was definitely a success and gave the audience knowledge of Eta Kappa Nu as well as the Zeta Lambda Chapter.
The E-Board created three committees to contribute to the longevity, growth and cooperation of the chapter. With these committees the 2017-2018 E-Board hopes to not only leave a legacy, but to also create a stronger bond between the organization and the ECE Department.
Zeta Lambda is extremely excited about their Induction Ceremony Day scheduled Tuesday April 3rd, 2018 (Zeta Lambda Charter Day). There are high hopes for the return of this chapter on the beloved campus of PVAMU and to the ECE Student Body.
Special thanks to our IEEE Region 5 South Area Chair CB Sanderson for visiting with us and sharing his special IEEE insight.
