Notice to Chapter Advisors
The IRS, once again, has begun sending revocation notices to our chapters without notifying the National Office. If your chapter receives a revocation notice from the IRS, please forward that notice to us here at the National Office. Your chapter has not violated any tax code or law and is covered by National ALD's Group Exemption, so please do not attempt to contact the IRS or resolve this issue on your own. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience, fervently hope that we're able to put this issue behind us in the next few months, and ask you to please remain patient while we work once again to resolve this matter. (Click here to see the apology National ALD received once this same issue was resolved last year.)
The University of Texas at San Antonio
The ALD chapter at the University of Texas – San Antonio gathered to support athletes in the Rock-n’ Roll Marathon. Athletes from across the nation met in San Antonio to run the full length marathon as spectators cheered them on. ALD members set up a station and handed out cups of much needed water to the runners at various stages in the race. “As a participant in the Rock-n’ Roll Marathon, I appreciated seeing my ALD officers sacrificing their time to support me and fellow runners. This also motivated some of the members to run the marathon next year” explained ALD Secretary, Felicia Head, “UTSA can be certain that this freshman honor society will continue to grow and strengthen its support of San Antonio for years to come”.
Matthew DuWaldt – Alpha Lambda Delta Stemler Scholarship Winner
When he’s not studying at the University of Aberdeen, Matthew DuWaldt spends his time being an exceptional student at Kalamazoo College in Kalamazoo, MI. Looking forward to his fall/winter studies in Aberdeen, Scotland, in late 2010-early 2011 Matthew applied for one of ALD’s Stemler Undergraduate Scholarships and received $1,000 to help fund his travels and studies! A consistent resident of the Dean’s List, Matthew has also taken home a Harlow Endowment Scholarship, Irene and S. Kyle Morris Prize from Kalamazoo’s Dept. of Economics and Business, and a Kalamazoo College Honors Scholarship.
According to Matthew, “Alpha Lambda Delta has equipped me with a framework that holds me to the highest expectations, so that I continue to strive for academic achievement… I have come to realize the potential we have to influence society through the campus, community, and national levels with our abilities in not just academia, but leadership as well.”
