Rho Rho Chapter of Sigma Delta Pi named an honor chapter for 20-21September 28, 2021
Truman State University’s Rho Rho Chapter of Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, was named an honor chapter for its outstanding activities in 20-21, the 28th consecutive year Truman has earned this prestigious distinction, which represents the longest continuous “Honor Chapter”-run in the 102-year-history of Sigma Delta Pi. The first award was received in 1993 under co-advisers Lucy Lee and Michael Buzan. Professor Stacy Bryant, Rho Rho’s Chapter Adviser, was instrumental in earning this national honor that was awarded to only 11 chapters nationwide in 2020.
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.
