Parents, professors and friends alike gathered to celebrate the achievements of nine angels going strong in their English and literature studies. On Monday, Apr. 15, nine new inductees were welcomed in Sigma Tau Delta: an International English Honor Society. Sigma Tau Delta was founded in 1924 and has grown to 71 chapters, including Meredith’s Alpha Iota Rho chapter. To qualify for SΤΔ, one must be an English major or minor or Professional Writing minor, have taken two English courses beyond English 200, have a 3.0 GPA or better in English, be in the top 35% of her class, and have completed 35+ hours of college credit. With snacks and a guest speaker, the students celebrated accomplishing these requirements.

Guest speaker Dr. Jessica Ward presented her current book project about 14th century discourses on avarice and how it intersects with today’s world.

For the first time, SΤΔ awarded a scholarship to a rising senior with impressive academic and service accomplishments on Meredith’s campus. Professors poured out an overwhelming amount of support to Alex Rouch, who undoubtedly deserves this honor.
