Panhellenic Sorority Woman of the Month: Lyndsey Yap

October's Sorority Woman of the month is Lindsey Yap of Alpha Gamma Delta:

Lindsey is currently a senior majoring in biochemistry and is applying to dental schools. For over a year she has been working in a chemistry research lab, and won first place for the Undergraduate Research Symposium for the faculty's choice category. She was the Activities Coordinator her sophomore year and the Vice President of Scholarship her junior year. She is actively involved in our chapter even though she currently does not hold a position. She was the captain of our team to participate in the Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes this year and has participated in the walk the past three years. She has participated in Relay for Life at Lehigh annually in honor of her grandmother who has been fighting lung cancer for the past 10 years. As the treasurer for the Dental Society and previously the activities coordinator, Lindsey has been attending elementary schools to educate children about preventative dental care as well as helping the underclassmen strengthen their skills for dental school. Some other clubs on campus that she has been involved with include the Admissions Ambassadors (previously called Diversity Delegates) and Hip Hop Club. She has been on the Dean's List the past three semesters, and continues to motivate all of the members academically with her accomplishments.

Congratulations, Lindsey!
