The organization was one of 11 chapters recognized as an Honor Chapter.
Written by Lori Cortez
This recognition is based on the caliber of chapter projects that reflect the Sigma Delta Pi mission statement.
For the seventh consecutive year, Texas Tech’s chapter of Sigma Delta Pi, a National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, has been named an Honor Chapter for its outstanding activities in 2010-2011.
Comfort Pratt, assistant professor in the College of Education and Texas Tech’s chapter adviser, was instrumental in earning this national honor, which was awarded to only 11 chapters nationwide.
Each May, all 581 chapters of Sigma Delta Pi 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 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.
Comfort Pratt is an assistant professor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction in the College of Education.
