We’re now entering the annual window in which interested and eligible students can join the International English Honors Society, Sigma Tau Delta. To be eligible graduate students must be actively enrolled in a graduate program, have completed six credits of graduate coursework, and have a minimum 3.3 GPA. Dr. Dana Horton (email@example.com) is the Sigma Tau coordinator again this year and is the one to contact about this, but please let me know as well if you intend to join (firstname.lastname@example.org). Here’s a bit more information about the society and the registration process for those interested:
Sigma Tau Delta was established in 1924 to confer distinction for high achievement in English language, literature, and writing. It now includes 825 chapters in the United States and abroad. Membership in this prestigious honor society is something a member can list on a resume under “professional organizations” and membership also provides access to resources and networking opportunities in the field of English. Please visit www.english.org to learn more.
Inductees, along with family and friends, are cordially invited to Mercy College’s Honors Day Induction Ceremony taking place on Monday, May 6, 2019, beginning at 6:00pm in the Maher Hall Conference Room on the Dobbs Ferry campus. Dinner and a reception will follow. There is no limit to the number of guests you may invite; however please let Dr. Horton (email@example.com) know now how many will attend so that we can order adequate catering. Attendance at the May ceremony is not required for membership.
Induction comes with lifetime membership in Sigma Tau Delta. The induction and lifetime membership requires a one-time processing fee of $45 and the check or money order must be made out to Mercy College.
The deadline for receiving this one-time payment of $45 and for accepting this membership invitation is Monday March 18, 2019.
When writing a check or money order include your name and Mercy ID# in the memo-line of the check. Mail (or hand deliver) the check or money order to:
Dr. Dana Horton
Maher Hall #202
Dobbs Ferry NY 10522
Students may also pay in cash but you cannot send cash through the mail. You must hand-deliver cash to Dr. Horton or to the department administrator, Linda Dubiell, in Maher Hall on the Dobbs Ferry campus.
Again if you are sending a check or money order make sure that it is made out to Mercy College, and that your name and college ID# are written on the check. Mercy collects and deposits these payments into its own account and then makes one total payment directly to the Sigma Tau Delta International English Honors Society. Any check or money order that is not made out to Mercy College will be returned to you as we will not be able to deposit it.
If you wish to accept this membership invitation, please email Dr. Horton (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible, and no later than the payment deadline of Monday March 18, 2019.
