Melder is a member of Phi Kappa Phi and Tri Beta honor society. She is the former President of Advocates for World Health and former secretary of Circle K International.
“Attending Louisiana Tech has been one of the best decisions,” Melder said. “I have met so many new people, made life-long friends, and have had so many amazing experiences.
