Meet Your 2017-2018 Student Leaders!

At the Sigma Tau Delta 2017 International Convention in Louisville, KY, students from each of Sigma Tau Delta’s six regions elected Student Representatives (SR) and Associate Student Representatives (ASR) to serve their regions and represent the interests of students to Sigma Tau Delta’s Board of Directors. Throughout the next year, they will be leading the regional Facebook groups, writing for WORDY by Nature, hosting EnglishMatters takeovers on the Society social media platforms, organizing regional journals, hosting regional events, and serving as a resource for members. Next spring the Student  Leaders will host workshops, contests, and social events at the 2018 Convention in Cincinnati, OH. They are always happy to answer questions, share ideas, and help members connect with one another and with the Society.
