On Sunday, April 14, 2013, Lewis University’s Lambda Epsilon Delta chapter of Alpha Sigma Lambda Honor Society held its second annual induction ceremony at the St. Charles Borromeo Pastoral Center to honor the exceptional academic accomplishments of its high-achieving adult students.

Rebecca Kowall did.  Rebecca graduated in May 2013 with a Bachelors degree in Human Resource Management and a minor in Business Administration. She took full advantage of the PLA opportunity, and because of this, she reached her intended goal to graduate by May 2013.  She successfully earned 21 general elective credits, which saved her just over $11,000 in tuition.
