Kilgore College English Honor Society to induct 32

Upsilon Delta, the Kilgore College chapter of Sigma Kappa Delta — the national English honor society for two-year colleges — will induct 32 students qualifying for membership this spring.

The ceremony is scheduled for 5 p.m. April 5 in the Devall Ballroom on the Kilgore campus.

Membership in SKD requires students to maintain a grade-point average of at least 3.3 on a 4.0 scale, to earn no grade lower than a B in a college English class and to have completed at least one semester of college studies.

Heather Fitch and Stephanie Laszik, English instructors, are co-sponsors of SKD at Kilgore College.

SKD, founded in 1996 at Northern Illinois University at DeKalb, Ill., is the only national organization that recognizes academic excellence in English for community college students. Kilgore College started its chapter in 2009.
