In Fall 2016, Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, continued its involvement and campus and community activities. They brought a guest speaker Dr. Jose Picart of NC State, the Executive Director of the Raleigh Promise, to campus to discuss promoting the post-secondary success and employment of underresourced students . Sigma Delta Pi, along with OLÉ, the Organización de la lengua española, helped to organize the Hispanic Heritage Fall Festival and participated in presenting a movie at UNCP's International Film Festival. Their members are also working as peer tutors at the Pabellón Hispano, a space that fosters liaison between students and the resources intended to give opportunities at the higher education focusing on the Hispanic/Latino high school students in our regional LEA's schools, specifically the ones surrounding the UNCP area.
Way to go, SDPers!
