Phi Sigma Iota inducts 34 new members

Thirty-four students were inducted into the Mu Chapter of Phi Sigma Iota—the international foreign language honor society—on April 14 in a special ceremony at Glen Rowan House. 

Stephanie Scholl ’16, a Spanish major, won the Superlative Achievement in Linguistics Award for 2016.

“Being recognized for something that I have worked toward since kindergarten is humbling and allows me to reflect on how far I have come as a Spanish student,” Scholl said.

She thanked her advisor, Associate Professor of Spanish and Chair of Modern Languages and Literatures Gizella Meneses, “who has had an unbelievable influence on my success as a student.”

Phi Sigma Iota is the highest academic honor in the field of foreign languages. There are approximately 250 chapters of Phi Sigma Iota at institutions of higher learning in the U.S., Mexico, and France.
