Dr. Sheri Spaine Long Inducted into Sigma Delta Pi's Order of the Discoverers

On July 7, 2012 in San Juan, Puerto Rico at the 94th Annual Conference of the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese, Dr. Sheri Spaine Long was inducted into the Order of the Discoverers, one of the highest honors of Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society. Professor Long's exceptional contributions to the profession and her loyal promotion of the ideals of Sigma Delta Pi have earned her this distinction. Past inductees include renowned literary figures such as Vanessa Montfort, Antonio Porpetta, Carmen Laforet and Carmen Conde, among others. A complete list of past honorees is available at http://www.sigmadeltapi.org.

Established in 1919 at the University of California, Berkeley, Sigma Delta Pi honors those who have completed three years of study of college-level Spanish, including at least three semester hours of a course in Hispanic literature or Hispanic culture and civilization with a minimal grade point average of 3.0 in all Spanish courses taken. Candidates must also rank in the upper 35% of their class--sophomore, junior, or senior--and must have completed at least three semesters or five quarters of college work. Graduate students may also be elected to membership upon completion of two graduate courses in Spanish with an average which, if continued, will make them eligible for a graduate degree.

With 585 chapters nationwide and its national office at the College of Charleston in South Carolina, Sigma Delta Pi is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies, the nation's only certifying agency for college and university honor societies.
