Texas Tech’s Sigma Delta Pi Earns National Recognition
The National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society was named honor chapter for 10th consecutive year.
Texas Tech University’s Alpha Phi Chapter of Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, has been named an Honor Chapter for its outstanding activities in 2013-14. This is the 10th consecutive year Texas Tech received this honor that was granted to only 12 chapters nationwide.
Associate Professor Comfort Pratt, Texas Tech’s chapter adviser and current national Sigma Delta Pi vice-president of the Southwest, said the recognition is a reflection of the successful collaboration between the chapter and university.
“Sigma Delta Pi has created numerous programs that have benefited the university and the Lubbock community tremendously, including a tutoring service, the Lubbock Spanish Spelling Bee competition, academic lectures, forums, art exhibits and collaborations with the Texas Tech School of Medicine and local schools,” Pratt said. “This has all been possible thanks to the exemplary leadership of our national office, grants from the Office of Vice President Juan Munoz, the Student Government Association and others and the constant support and encouragement of Texas Tech administrators.”
