Morningside College student Kelci Teut was recently elected to serve as a student member-at-large on the Alpha Lambda Delta National Council. She will be one of three students nationwide serving in this position.
Alpha Lambda Delta is a national honor society that recognizes and encourages academic excellence among first-year college and university students. It is one of the nation’s oldest honor societies, founded in 1924 at the University of Illinois, and one of the largest, with over 30,000 new members being inducted each year.
The Alpha Lambda Delta National Council is responsible for operational planning, long-term planning, financial oversight and general decision-making for the organization as a whole. Teut will begin her three-year term on the council in June. She will attend meetings in locations ranging from Portland, Ore., to New Orleans.
“Service on the Alpha Lambda Delta National Council provides students like Kelci with the opportunity to experience and participate in the operations of a board of directors,” said Lee Greenway, director of communication for Alpha Lambda Delta. “Event planning, financial management, personnel policy and public speaking and appearances are just a few of the myriad tasks Kelci will be performing on the council, which is invaluable experience for a college student.”
Teut is the daughter of Dennis and Cheri Teut of Hinton, Iowa. She is a 2009 graduate of Hinton High School. Her majors at Morningside are counseling psychology and English.
Advisors for the Morningside chapter of Alpha Lambda Delta are Marty Knepper, professor and chair of English, and Terri Curry, vice president for student life and enrollment.
