- Georgia College’s Kappa Psi Chapter of the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society has been named an “Honor Chapter” for its outstanding activities in 2015-16, an award that was bestowed to only 13 chapters nationwide in 2016.
- This is the first “Honor Chapter” distinction in the history of the chapter, an award largely due to the fine leadership of GC’s chapter adviser, Professor Mariana Stoyanova.
- Each summer, the more than 610 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.
