Texas State University's Chapter 
of Sigma Delta Pi Earns National Award 

Texas State University's Chapter Epsilon Beta of the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society has been named an “Honor Chapter” for its outstanding activities in 2020-21, an award that was bestowed to only 13 chapters nationwide in 2021.  This is the 16th time in its history that Texas State has won this award: the first was in 1991 under Professor Roberto A. Galván. Chapter Adviser David Navarro was instrumental in earning this year's recognition, as he also was the previous two years that Texas State received this national award: 2019 and 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.

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.
