Dear Friends, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your support as the Speech-Language Pathology Department continues to grow. The department would not be able to expand and flourish without the encouragement of the administrators, faculty, students, alumni and our affiliates and friends. This newsletter will keep you informed regarding our new faculty, our new SLP scholarship initiative, our first class of master’s students, as well as the efforts and activities of the Molloy College Chapter of the National Student Speech, Language and Hearing Association (NSSLHA). The Rising Star Scholarship was established in 2011 as a means of recognizing the accomplishments of an undergraduate speech-language pathology student. The Newsletter points out how successful our efforts have been in funding this scholarship. Our first class of master’s students entered in the Fall of 2011. They are a group of exceptional women who we believe will thrive in the profession. I am very proud of the Molloy Chapter of NSSLHA. The students have been working tirelessly, and it is only Fall! They have managed to raise over $4,000.00 toward the Rising Star Scholarship and they are currently preparing to send six students to the annual American Speech, Language and Hearing Association Convention in California. Take a look at the Newsletter and learn more about all of these exciting things!
