Sigma Delta Pi Hispanic Honor Society receives national awards

By on August 20, 2019 in ACU News with 0 Comments

ACU’s Omega Gamma Chapter of Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, has been named an Honor Chapter for its outstanding activities in 2018-19. This is the sixth year in its history that Abilene Christian enjoys this prestigious distinction. In addition, because ACU maintained Honor Chapter status each year of the 2016-19 triennium, Omega Gamma has also received the prestigious Octavio Paz Award that was granted to only six chapters in 2019. Dr. Beatriz Walker, chapter adviser, was instrumental in earning these national awards.

Each summer, the 625 chapters of Sigma Delta Pi are asked to submit an annual report detailing their 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.
