Sigma Tau Delta to recognize Stephens chapter, faculty sponsor

November 19, 2015

Sigma Tau Delta is recognizing the Stephens College chapter, along with sponsoring faculty member Judith Clark, for its 20th anniversary.

“Supporting and maintaining a chapter for this length of time is a notable achievement, and you can be proud—as we are—of your own participation in the long history of the Alpha Epsilon Eta Chapter’s involvement with the International Honor Society,” Executive Director William Johnson wrote in a letter to Clark. “This milestone is certainly cause for celebration.”

Both the chapter and Clark will receive special plaques at the organization’s International Convention March 2-5 in Minneapolis. Alpha Epsilon Eta will be honored during the General Business Session of the convention, and Clark will be recognized at the Regents and Sponsors Luncheon.

Several Stephens students have also submitted works in hopes of presenting at the conference.

Additionally, Harbinger, the College’s literary magazine, will be up for Outstanding Literary Journal of the Year, an honor it has received four of the past five years.

Stephens has other connections to the convention this year, as well. Senior Maya Alpert recently won first place in Sigma Tau Delta’s Midwestern Region Blog and will have her entry posted on the society’s website soon. And junior Shelly Romero is currently serving as the Student Representative for the Midwestern Region, helping to plan the event.

In his letter to Clark, Johnson praised Stephens for contributing to the success of the international organization. “You and your school are to be congratulated for your contribution toward that legacy of quality,” he wrote. “We are proud to be affiliated with student-oriented, actively-involved faculty such as you, and with schools such as Stephens College, where a real commitment to excellence is both obvious and ongoing.”
