Palm Beach Atlantic University’s chapter of the Sigma Tau Delta English Honor Society has won the organization’s 2016-17 Outstanding Chapter Award as the top chapter in the nation.

Sigma Tau Delta is one of the largest university honor societies with over 800 national chapters. In recent years, PBA students in the organization have won scholarships, achieved publication in national journals and presented at the annual convention, and this award is the culmination of those collective achievements.

PBA was recognized for winning the Outstanding Chapter Award during the formal business meeting of the 2017 Sigma Tau Delta International Convention in Louisville, Kentucky. PBA students Isabella Lindh and Jacob Hawk were in attendance, as well as faculty sponsor Dr. Carl F. Miller.

During the convention, Lindh presented a critical paper on Yevgeny Zamyatin’s We with Hawk chairing the panel.

In addition to student panels and roundtables, the convention’s keynote speakers included Marlon James, Jeff VanderMeer and Megan Mayhew Bergman.
