Truman State University’s Rho Rho Chapter of Sigma Delta Pi, was named an “Honor Chapter”August 9, 2023
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 2022-23, the 30th consecutive year Truman has earned this prestigious distinction, which represents the longest continuous “Honor Chapter”-run in the 104-year-history of Sigma Delta Pi. The first award was received in 1993 under co-advisers Lucy Lee and Michael Buzan. Furthermore, Truman’s chapter was also awarded the national Ignacio and Sophie Galbis Award as outstanding chapter of the year. Professor Stacy Davis, Rho Rho’s Chapter Adviser in 2022-23, was instrumental in earning this year’s national honors.
Each summer, the 634 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.
