Sigma Kappa Delta was chartered at Snead State Community College in 2012 as the Iota Epsilon Chapter. The purpose of the local chapter is to reward and encourage outstanding student achievement in language and literature. Students may have opportunities in an informal setting to talk about creative writing and modern fiction, meet famous writers, submit writing for publication, pursue scholarships, and possibly even attend special events that promote literature and writing. Being a member also adds distinction to a student’s resume.
The group has meetings or programs about once a month. Requirements for membership include completion of twelve hours of transferable college credit with a 3.30 or better average, including a B or better in all English courses. Members do NOT have to be English majors.
