On Friday, May 13, 2022, initiation was conducted for ten students whose academic achievement and commitment to Spanish qualified them to join Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Honor Society for Spanish.
University at Buffalo has had a chapter of Sigma Delta Pi for over fifty years. Nationally, there are more than 600 chapters. The organization was founded by Ruth Barnes and her friends at UC Berkeley in 1919. The ideals of the group include fostering understanding between people of English speech and people of Spanish speech.
New members of the UB chapter are:
Devon E. Burnside
Leydi Hernandez Fernandez
Kallie Agatha Rose McKenzie
