Truman's Chapter of Sigma Delta Pi Earns Top Honor

Truman State University’s chapter of the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society has been chosen for the prestigious Ignacio and Sophie Galbis Award, presented annually to the most outstanding chapter nationwide for activities realized during the academic year.

Each May, all 540 chapters of Sigma Delta Pi 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 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.

Lucy F. Lee, Truman’s chapter adviser and 2004 recipient of the José Martel Award for the most exceptional chapter adviser for the 2001-04 triennium, was instrumental in earning this highest chapter-honor of Sigma Delta Pi. With its national office at The Citadel in Charleston, S.C., 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.
