Sigma Delta Pi Named Honor Chapter for 21st Consecutive Year
Truman’s chapter of Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, was named an Honor Chapter for its outstanding activities in 2013-14, the 21st consecutive year the chapter has earned this prestigious distinction.
Lucy Lee, Rho Rho chapter adviser and national president of Sigma Delta Pi, has been instrumental in earning this national honor that was awarded to only 12 chapters nationwide in 2014.
Each May, nearly 600 chapters of Sigma Delta Pi nationwide are asked to submit an annual report detailing their numerous activities and projects from the academic year. Based on these reports, the national executive committee chooses approximately 10-15 Honor Chapters annually. This recognition is based upon the caliber of chapter projects that reflect the Sigma Delta Pi mission of honoring excellence in the study of the Spanish language, contributing to cultural understanding and upholding the goals of the society.
With its national office at the College of Charleston in South Carolina, Sigma Delta Pi is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies, the nation’s only certifying agency for college and university honor societies.
