The Ohio University chapter of Sigma Delta Pi, the national collegiate Hispanic honor society, was named a 2018 Honor Chapter.

Of the 600-plus chapters nationwide, only nine chapters were selected this year.

“Honor Chapters (Capítulos de Honor y Mérito) are selected each year by the Executive Committee based upon annual reports submitted by the chapters. Awardees are those chapters that have distinguished themselves during the academic year with activities and projects that best reflect the mission of the Society,” according to the national society’s website. Honor Chapters receive a certificate along with recognition both on the Society’s national website and in Entre Nosotros.”

The OHIO chapter also won a second award for 2017-18, the Phoenix Award.

This award “recognizes one chapter for a year of extraordinary and exemplary activity as compared to the previous year(s).”

The Modern Languages Department is extremely proud of these awards and extends congratulations to the members of Sigma Delta Pi, the Spanish faculty, and especially to Dr. Ashwini Ganeshan, chapter adviser.
