NSSLHA Chapter Awarded 2018 Bronze Chapter Honors

The National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (National NSSLHA) has awarded Georgia Southern University Armstrong Campus in Savannah with 2018 Bronze Chapter Honors.

The NSSLHA Chapter at Armstrong Campus helped National NSSLHA increase awareness of communication sciences and disorders among state and federal legislators, contributed a donation of more than $10,000 to the ASHFoundation’s NSSLHA Scholarship, raised more than $15,250 for the 2017-2018 NSSLHA Loves campaign, and supported clients, students and organizations in local communities across the nation.

“I am so proud of our students in NSSLHA,” stated April Garrity, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences and faculty advisor to the chapter. “They made a commitment to attain Chapter Honors at the beginning of the academic year, and they did it. This is the first time we have earned Chapter Honors since I began serving as the faculty advisor 10 years ago.”

National NSSLHA Chapter Honors are awarded to affiliated NSSLHA chapters that demonstrate an outstanding effort to support National NSSLHA’s mission to inspire, empower and support students in communication sciences and disorders programs.
