Sigma Tau Delta, the international honor society for English majors, inducted 11 charter members into its new chapter at Georgia Gwinnett College.

The student officers for the chapter are Erin Corrigan-Smith - president, Amber Satterfield - vice president, Erika Dillingham - treasurer, Darlene Vincent - secretary and Nick Bon - historian. The Sigma Tau faculty advisor is Rebecca Flynn, assistant professor of English.

“The idea behind this honor society is to foster a sense of community among those who specialize in the study of the English language and literature,” said Flynn, an honorary Sigma Tau Delta member. “The society provides members with a lot of opportunities, like access to regional conferences, scholarships and internships.”

Entrance into the society is reserved for students who have completed at least six hours of 2000-level (or above) English courses and have attained a minimum grade point average of 3.0 in both their English courses and general studies. Members must rank in the top 35 percent of their class, and have completed at least three semesters of college-level coursework. 

In addition to the society officers, charter inductees include: Karen Krider, Clark Sipsy, Amy Gibson, Nurian Torres, Tiffany McCarty and Tracey Carpenter.
