Kilgore College English Honor Society to induct 38 new members May 4

Posted

Upsilon Delta, the Kilgore College chapter of Sigma Kappa Delta – the national English honor society for two-year colleges – will induct 38 students qualifying for membership this spring.

The ceremony is set for 5:30 p.m. Friday, May 4, in the Devall Ballroom on the Kilgore campus.

Membership in SKD requires students to maintain a grade point average of at least 3.3 on a 4.0 scale; to earn no grade lower that a “B” in a college English class; and to have completed at least one semester of college studies.

Heather Fitch and Stephanie Laszik, English faculty members, are co-sponsors of SKD at KC.

SKD, founded in 1996 at Northern Illinois University at DeKalb, Ill., is the only national organization that recognizes academic excellence in English for community college students.

KC started its chapter in 2009 by submitting an application to the national offices and undergoing a successful review of facilities and instruction.

The SKD chapter at KC extends membership invitations to eligible students each semester.

For more information about SKD or for questions regarding membership in the organization, contact Fitch at hfitch@kilgore.edu or Laszik at slaszik@kilgore.edu.
