Florence, KY (August 11, 2010) — In the sanctity of Courtroom 4A in the Boone County Justice Center, Judge Steven R. Jaeger, Senior Judge of the Kentucky Court of Justice, presided over the induction of eleven (11) students from Beckfield College into the Lambda Epsilon Chi National Honor Society on July 26, 2010.
"This ceremony truly acknowledges the strength and dedication of students who have gone the extra mile in and out of the classroom," noted Jerry Linger, Attorney at Law and Dean of Legal Studies at Beckfield College. "It is so fitting to see these men and women be recognized for their academic achievement in the courtroom."
Beckfield College paralegal students inducted into the society included Jill Archer, William Bohl, Jennifer Duncan, Pamela Gaines, Staci Gilbert, Sarah Green-Moore, Carlita Hairston, Leah Neyer, Mary Robinson, Terry Weller, Hannah Robeyzachariah.
Lambda Epsilon Chi (LEX) is a national honor society in paralegal studies. The purpose of LEX is to recognize persons who have demonstrated superior academic performance in an established program of paralegal/legal assistant studies offered at an institution that is an institutional member in good standing of the American Association for Paralegal Education.
Each year, Beckfield College selects those students who meet high academic criteria and honors them for their accomplishments by inducting them into Lambda Epsilon Chi. These students are recognized through a formal court ceremony and the awarding of a certificate of Induction, a special lapel pin, and a ceremonial sash to be worn at Commencement. They are also entered into the permanent records of Lambda Epsilon Chi and the American Association for Paralegal Education.
Each student inducted has demonstrated “superior academic performance” which is evidenced by a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or higher and has completed at least two-thirds of the program requirements to complete such program as determined by the institution.
