Alison Ramirez Hernandez Awarded Phi Delta Lambda Honor Society Scholarship

Apr 27, 2024

QUINCY – The Phi Delta Lambda Honor Society of Eastern Nazarene College (ENC) has named Alison Ramirez Hernandez as the 2024-25 Phi Delta Lambda scholarship recipient. The prestigious scholarship is awarded to a member of the Phi Delta Lambda Honor Society entering their senior year at the College with demonstrated financial need.  

Phi Delta Lambda is the international honor society of the colleges within the Church of the Nazarene. The first chapter, the Alpha Chapter, was established at Point Loma Nazarene University (formerly Pasadena Nazarene College), followed by Eastern Nazarene College’s Beta Chapter.   

Membership to the society is designed to promote scholarship and relations among students and graduates of the Nazarene colleges, and the stimulation and maintenance of ideal learning, character, and Christian witness. Phi Delta Lambda is comprised of the top 15 percent of the graduating class earning baccalaureate degrees from the traditional undergraduate programs, or the top 15 percent of the graduating class earning baccalaureate degrees from the Adult and Graduate Studies programs. Graduates must have a minimum 3.5 cumulative GPA to be considered for membership.  

In the spirit of service, the Phi Delta Lambda Honor Society gathers contributions for an endowed scholarship to be given to an outstanding member of the junior class, based on both need and merit. The society has named Alison Ramirez Hernandez the recipient of this year’s scholarship.  

Hailing from El Salvador, Ramirez Hernandez moved to the United States 10 years ago, where she settled in Virginia and attended high school. During her junior year, Ramirez Hernandez sought a career that would challenge and excite, which led her to take a computer science course the following year, sparking a love of programming. This love led Ramirez Hernandez to ENC, where she studies Computer Science. “In the atmosphere of loving computer science, I found students who struggled with programming, even if it wasn’t a part of their major,” said Ramirez Hernandez. She decided to use her natural talent to aid others by becoming a tutor for Computer Science courses. “While tutoring, I assist those who need help with difficult courses and those who do not understand the topic due to language barriers.”  

Ramirez Hernandez hopes one day to be ordained by the Church of the Nazarene and is taking Christian Ministry classes alongside her Computer Science coursework to achieve this goal. These classes not only build on knowledge she gained at the Instituto Teológico Nazareno in the Northern Virginia district, but also challenge her and contribute greatly to her spiritual growth and development.  

Ramirez Hernandez hopes that with her ENC Computer Science degree, she can become a software engineer and later concentrate on cybersecurity, with dreams of working with the National Security Agency.  

“I have loved working closely with my professors during my time at ENC,” Ramirez Hernandez says, “They have been of great help and encouragement through hard times.”
