Sigma Delta Pi Receives National Award


Truman’s Rho Rho Chapter of Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, was named an “Honor Chapter” for its outstanding activities in 2019-20.

This marks the 27th consecutive year the Truman organization has earned this prestigious distinction, which represents the longest continuous “Honor Chapter”-run in the 100-year-history of Sigma Delta Pi. Stacy Bryant, assistant professor of Spanish and Rho Rho’s chapter adviser in 2019-20, was instrumental in earning this national honor that was awarded to only 11 chapters nationwide.  

Each summer, the 627 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.
