After being awarded the silver standing last year in Chapter Honors, NSSLHA is determined to earn the gold level this year. They are currently fundraising, volunteering, planning events, donating, and meeting the requirements needed to be considered. One of the requirements is to create a video that represents their chapter and also touches on the theme of the ASHA convention this year. The theme is science, learning, practice and generations of discovery. This is encompassed in the video which follows a Hunger Games theme. NSSLHA members who participated had a long but fun day of filming. It was a nice outlet during the stressful month of midterms. SFSU NSSLHA has submitted their video and is currently awaiting approval from the ASHA board. Stay tuned to see the video on this blog!
