HIGH POINT, N.C. — High Point University’s Lambda Pi Eta chapter held a ceremony to induct more than 40 students into the National Communication Association’s honor society.

School officials said the event honored students who have completed rigorous coursework and maintained a high GPA.

The initiates pledged to honor the society’s three core building blocks: character, credibility and ethics, which are based on Aristotle’s “Rhetoric.”

Officials said the group was established at HPU in 2009 and the members have volunteered to improve literacy skills in Guilford County. Members have reportedly served as mentors and provided tutoring through the program.

“I’m honored to serve as faculty adviser to the HPU Lambda Pi Eta chapter,” said Dr. Nahed Eltantawy, assistant professor of journalism, according to a prepared statement.
