Clayton State University’s chapter of Sigma Tau Delta (STD), the International English Honor Society, recently inducted 25 English and Education members. After their oaths, led by chapter President LaNesha Lamar, they enjoyed a candle lit reception with catered food, various desserts, and soft jazz playing in the background.
“While the primary goal of the organization is to honor and promote excellent scholarship in English studies, Clayton State's chapter, Alpha Nu Xi, focuses on ways that writing and literature can be used to improve the community,” says Dr. Susan Rashid Horn, Clayton State assistant professor and director of the Writer’s Studio.
The new members will join current members in writing a proposal and grant to add more printers and copiers on campus. Also, the Alpha Nu Xi chapter of STD is preparing to launch two new scholarships. One will be an essay competition for freshmen that promote safe sexual practices on campus. The other scholarship is designed for members of the Alpha Nu Xi chapter who have demonstrated outstanding community service.
