SLAMs can receive a Certificate of Appreciation at five different levels for each semester of service, ranging from bronze (one semester) to platinum (five semesters or more).
I joined SLAMs because I like helping out other people... It’s good to do what I can for someone else and help them through difficult subjects. It’s good fun, I really enjoy it.
