Anderson honored with Mortar Board Excellence in Advising award
Dr. Martha Anderson, ULM assistant dean of students, has been honored with an Excellence in Advising award by the Mortar Board National College Senior Honor Society.
Anderson said she recognizes the outstanding honor being given to her, but she wanted to relay a great deal of the credit to ULM chapter president Raghada Elsayed and her remarkable leadership.
Anderson was elected as an alumni representative to the National Council of Mortar Board and serves as liaison administrator to the Mortar Board National College Senior Honor Society.
She will not be able to appear at the Mortar Board National Conference "Carrying the Torch," July 25 27 in Columbus, Ohio, but Chase Snyder of ULM will accept it on her behalf as the ULM representative attending.
According to its Web site, Mortar Board is a national honor society that recognizes college seniors for excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership and service. Mortar Board members represent the top scholars and leaders on their campuses. Since its establishment in 1918, nearly a quarter of a million members have been initiated at 226 chartered chapters across the nation.
