Hispanic Honor Society to host Initiation Ceremony
The Chapter Zeta Phi of Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, will host its annual initiation for sixteen new members into its Spanish Honor Society, on Wednesday, May 1st at 5 p.m. in the Interdisciplinary Academic Building. Sigma Delta Pi is the national honor society for students of Spanish literature and culture. Established in 1914 on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley, Sigma Delta Pi sponsors chapters all over the country, from small colleges to major universities. Members rank in the upper 35% of their college class, and have maintained a 3.0 or better GPA in their coursework in their Spanish courses. One of the purposes of this society is to honor those who attain excellence in the study of the Spanish language and in the study of the literature and culture of the Spanish-speaking peoples.
Several Spanish language students, and the Spanish faculty of the Department of Foreign Languages from both campuses, Armstrong and Statesboro, will attend the ceremony. Emily Pressler and Jordan Clarke, two recently initiated members, will conduct the ceremony, which will be followed by a reception. A certificate, a pin, and a red carnation will be distributed among the neophytes during the ceremony as symbols of their entry into the society.
