The National Student Speech Language Hearing Association has awarded the chapter at East Tennessee State University with 2019 Gold Chapter Honors.

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

“The ETSU NSSLHA chapter is dedicated to making a difference in our community and university,” said Olivia Page, president of ETSU’s chapter.

Page is a graduate student in ETSU’s Speech-Language Pathology master’s program in the College of Clinical and Rehabilitative Health Sciences.

“Our chapter is motivated to make the most of our two years in graduate school by participating in philanthropy events, fundraising and fellowship through social events. We believe in service-based leadership and we are looking forward to what is to come in the following year,” Page said.

The NSSLHA is the only national student organization for pre-professionals studying communication sciences and disorders recognized by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Established in 1972, National NSSLHA supports more than 13,400 members and 300 chapters at colleges and universities nationwide.

ETSU’s chapter aims to encourage professional interest among college and university students in the study of human communication sciences and disorders. They encourage a vehicle for student representation in matters of professional concern and strive to serve as a network for school, service and future employment.
