Order of Merit Recipients

Since 1935, Lambda Chi Alpha has recognized unusual, lengthy, and dedicated service — particularly at the local chapter level — with the election of the Order of Merit. The medallion of the Order of Merit shows the cross and crescent as taken from the coat of arms of the Order of St. Mary Magdalen. These following individuals have exemplified what it means to be servant leaders of Lambda Chi Alpha.
