Truman’s Chapter of Sigma Delta Pi Earns Top Honor

Truman State University’s chapter of Sigma Delta Pi, a National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, has been chosen for the prestigious Ignacio and Sophie Galbis Award, a recognition the chapter also received in 2006.

This award is presented annually to the most outstanding chapter nationwide for activities realized during the school year.

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, professor of Spanish, and 2004 recipient of the Jose 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, 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.
