WCU inducts students into honor society

Twenty-two Western Carolina University English students recently were inducted into Sigma Tau Delta, an international English honors society.

The evening induction ceremony was held on the university’s campus and was led by Nicole Jarosinski, society member; Elizabeth Addison, English department head; and Bill Spencer, visiting professor of English and the chapter’s faculty adviser.

“These students have all met the high standards set by the international honor society organization,” Spencer said. “English is a demanding course of study, and these honor students have excelled in it. They should be very proud of their accomplishment.”

Students who wish to join Sigma Tau Delta must pursue a major or minor in English, maintain a grade point average of 3.0 or higher in their English courses and be in the top 35 percent of their class.
