Neil Deramchi and Elena Salman, recently UCLA Dove graduates, received the Chancellor's Service Award for their exemplary leadership and service contributions to the UCLA community.
The Chancellor's Service Award was created to honor "students who (...) have donated their time and energy to making a positive difference at UCLA and in the community. In order to be honored a graduating student must have established a sustained record of commitment to leadership and service through his or her outstanding contributions."
Deramchi, who received a Bachelors of Science in Biochemistry, and Salman, who received a Bachelors of Science in Biology, were engaged in numerous organizations and academic positions throughout their undergraduate career. Both Deramchi and Salman joined Epsilon Alpha Sigma their first-year of college, where they quickly took on key leadership roles within their chapter.
We are so proud of Deramchi and Salman for their dedicated service to EAΣ and the UCLA community, and we cannot wait to see where their future takes them!
