Adelphi University’s Emergency Management program recently inducted its first six students into the Emergency Management/Homeland Security Honors Society, Order of the Sword and Shield.
The Order of the Sword and Shield is the first academic and professional honor society dedicated exclusively to homeland security, intelligence, and all protective security disciplines. The purpose of this organization is to promote critical thinking, high scholarship and professional development, to further enhance the ethical standards of the protective security professions, and to cultivate a high order of personal living. Adelphi University’s Chapter Advisor Meghan McPherson, MPP, CEM, Program Manager of the Emergency Management Graduate Programs and Coordinator of Center for Health Innovation along with Dr. K.C. Rondello, Assistant Professor and Academic Chair of Emergency Management Programs, performed the ritual of lighting four candles to represent the four core values of ethics, excellence, knowledge and peace.
Adelphi University congratulates the six members inducted in the inaugural ceremony Joseph Battaglia, Tanya Fischer, Eric Goldman, John Johrden, Guy Morinville, and Lesley Welsh. The Emergency Management Department is extremely proud of their achievement and look forward to growing this organization in the coming years.
