Sigma Delta Pi Wins Consecutive Awards
The organization was one of 14 chapters recognized as an Honor Chapter.
Written by Leslie Cranford
This recognition is based on the caliber of chapter projects that reflect the Sigma Delta Pi mission statement.
Texas Tech University’s chapter of Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, has been named an Honor Chapter for its outstanding activities in 2011-2012. This is the eighth consecutive year that Texas Tech has received this award. Professor Comfort Pratt, Texas Tech’s chapter adviser, was instrumental in earning the honor that was awarded to only 14 chapters nationwide in 2012.
Each May, all 585 chapters of Sigma Delta Pi across the U.S. 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.
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.
