The University of New Mexico’s Gamma Lambda Chapter of the Tau Sigma Delta Honor Society inducted Los Alamos native James Janke as one of its 30 inductees for the fall 2009 semester.

The society, which offers guidance to students in architecture, landscape architecture and planning, held its induction ceremony recently.

Janke, son of Jeff and Christie Janke, is a senior and architecture major and a 2004 Los Alamos High School graduate.

“Being inducted into Tau Sigma Delta was encouraging,” Janke said. “It reinforced that I am heading in the right direction and that others were recognizing my hard work.”

All students were nominated to receive admittance into the Tau Sigma Delta Honor Society. The invitation to join is automatically extended to students in the top 20 percent of each of the School of Architecture and Planning's programs.

UNM is home to the state's only schools of law, medicine, pharmacy and architecture and operates New Mexico's only academic health center.
