We would like to take this time to congratulate Melanie Hudson, MA, CCC-SLP on becoming an ASHA Fellow during the 2013 ASHA Convention in Chicago, Illinois this past November! It is an honor to have Melanie as a part of the EBS family.

According to ASHA, American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, the status of Fellow is retained for life and is one of the highest honors this professional organization can bestow. It recognizes professional or scientific achievement and is given to a member who has shown outstanding contribution to the professions-contributions that are significant and would be so regarded within and beyond one's community or state. Our profession has thousands of members who fulfill their responsibilities competently and well, but only a small percentage have, by virtue of the quality and amount of their contributions, distinguished themselves sufficiently to warrant recognition by election to Fellow in ASHA.
