On November 14, 2013, Sigma Delta Pi celebrated its birthday along with our own Omega Gamma President, Jessie Allen. It was a real honor to celebrate these two events together during our Fall Initiation Ceremony.
The event took place at the Campus Center. Our speaker was Dr. Ron Morgan, Chair of the Department of History, who presented in flawless Spanish! Dr. Morgan talked about the joy he experienced reading Iberia by James Michener, while he was learning Spanish as a young student.
On this occasion, we welcomed eight new members: Puneet Chahal, Itzell Gomez, Tiffany Sheffield, Jarred Baker, Katie Cranfill, Jeanette Devora, Daniel Archer and Richard Elmore.
We also announced the good news that had earned our first national award for the excellent activities and service to the campus of ACU and to the Abilene community provided by the members of Omega Gamma during the 2012-2013 school year.
At the same time we talked about all of our projects for the year 2013-2014. In October, we partnered with the Grace Museum to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with an evening of bi-lingual literature. It was a grand occasion at standing-room only!(see related page). Omega Gamma members also provided a venue for practicing Spanish for the elementary and intermediate Spanish classes at ACU, through “Una Noche de Español” a get together at the Inkwell (Chambers Hall). And last but not least, we are collaborating with the Texas Parent/Teacher Association, translating official documents to be used statewide.
While Dr. Walker would like to keep all honor students on campus forever, we always say good-bye to some as they graduate. This time we handed honor cords to Eric Dice and Daniel Archer who graduated in December.
