The Purdue University North Central Alpha Mu Pi chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, the International English Honor Society, recently honored six English majors for their high academic achievement. In a ceremony held at PNC, students were recognized for their personal accomplishments and awarded lifetime membership certificates and pins.
The new members are Meghan Davis, of Lake Station; Phillip Guildner, of La Porte; Angela Hall, of Hebron; Eileen Long, of Michigan City; Ashley Pezan, of Portage and Mitchell Wiesjahn, of Wanatah. The Sigma Tau Delta faculty sponsor is Dr. Jane E. Rose, PNC associate professor of English.
