Texas State U's Chapter of Sigma Delta Pi and Faculty Adviser
Receive National Awards
Texas State University's Beta Epsilon Chapter of Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, has been named an “Honor Chapter” for its outstanding activities in 2018-19. In addition, TSU was also granted the national Phoenix Award for a year of extraordinary and exemplary activity as compared to the same chapter's project from the previous year. Professor David Navarro, TSU's chapter adviser, was instrumental in earning these national honors and was consequently presented the Lucy F. Lee Award as the chapter adviser of the year for 2019.
Each summer, the 625 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.
