This year the Lambda Pi Eta honor society and members of the Business Communication department participated in Relay for Life in honor of Professor Christine Noya, who was recently diagnosed with cancer. The name of the team was Chris' Kako’o, which means Chris’ Supporters in Hawaiian, which coincides with the Luau theme of Relay in 2017. Many members of the department, including some of the professors, joined the team and helped the fight against cancer in honor of our beloved professor. The team raised over $2,800 for Relay and the American Cancer Society.
