Sigma Tau Delta Helps Fund Literacy Project

Rhodes’ chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, the International English Honor Society, recently donated to a literacy and history project in Tennessee called “I’m a Poet And Don’t Know It.”  Their contribution will help provide sixth graders in a high-need, rural school with 15 poetry books, including works by Shel Silverstein, Langston Hughes, and Dr. Seuss. The honor society raised funds by helping Davis-Kidd Booksellers with its holiday gift-wrapping. The fundraising project was led by Bryan Hearn ’09, Vice-President for Campus Involvement for Rhodes’ chapter of Sigma Tau Delta. Publication Date: 1/26/2009
