Regent Rose to Deliver Honor Society Speech

April 12, 2007

University of Houston System Regent Lynden B. Rose will draw from his own experiences as a UH student when he speaks at the Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society induction ceremony this week.

The free event will start at 5 p.m., Sunday, April 15 in the University Center's Houston Room. There, the organization will induct 145 freshmen who hold a minimum 3.5 GPA.

During the ceremony, Rose will commend the students for their early academic achievement and encourage them to continue on their path of academic excellence. He also will share his own success story as a student-athlete.

An attorney, Rose earned his undergraduate and law degrees from UH, where he also was co-captain of the Cougar basketball team that reached the NCAA Final Four in 1982. He was appointed a regent in 2004.

Alpha Lambda Delta is an honor society that recognizes academic excellence among freshman students. Its primary focus is academic and civic involvement.
