Cynthia Whitaker and Belle Smirnoff Awarded Lambda Epsilon Chi Scholarship

April 3, 2013

GW paralegal master’s students Cynthia Whitaker and Belle Smirnoff have won the prestigious Lambda Epsilon Chi scholarship. Lambda Epsilon Chi (LEX) is the national honor society founded by the American Association for Paralegal Education. There are 146 Chapters throughout the United States and thousands of inductees who have been honored for their outstanding academic achievements. This year’s competition received many excellent submissions, but these fine GW paralegal students distinguished themselves even among such a robust and impressive field.

Each year the host institutions select those students who meet high academic criteria – at GW the requirements are a GPA of 3.9 or higher and standing in the top 10 per cent of the class – and cite them for their accomplishments by inducting them into Lambda Epsilon Chi. GW honors these students at a formal ceremony at which we award the a Certificate of Induction, a special pin, and a gold honor cord to wear on their robes. They are then entered into the permanent rolls of LEX.
