Recently Dina Cashman was initiated into Lambda Pi Eta, the nationally recognized honor society for undergraduate students in the field of communications, at Endicott College.

Cashman is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Timothy Cashman of Milford. She is a junior.

Lambda Pi Eta was initiated by the students of the Department of Communication at the University of Arkansas and was then endorsed by the faculty and founder, Dr. Stephen A. Smith in 1985. The Speech Communication Association established Lambda Pi Eta as an affiliate organization and as the official national communication honor society for undergraduates in 1994. In February 1996, Lambda Pi Eta was inducted in the Association of College Honor Societies. There are currently 400 chapters worldwide.

To be eligible for membership, students must have completed 60 semester hours in undergraduate credit courses; have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0; have completed the equivalent of 12 semester hours in courses in communication; have a grade point average of at least 3.25 in these courses, and be currently enrolled as a full-time student in good standing with their institution.
