Four high-achieving Lakeland University students were recently inducted into Chi Nu, LU’s chapter of the Spanish National Honor Society, Sigma Delta Pi.

Brianne Frank, Elizabeth Hahn, Jessica Luecke and Heather Meyer joined 63 previously inducted Lakeland Chi Nu members when they took part in a ceremony at Lakeland’s Ley Chapel.

“It’s one of my favorite events, because it celebrates some of our best students, and allows them to be recognized here on campus and nationally,” said LU Spanish Instructor Katie Fronczak of the ceremony, which was conducted in Spanish.

“By joining Chi Nu, these students are pledging to promote the Spanish language and its varied cultures.”

Lakeland’s Chi Nu chapter has been in existence since 2006. To qualify, students must maintain a 3.0 overall grade point average, complete at least one 300 level Spanish course and maintain a 3.0 gpa in all Spanish courses. In addition, Chi Nu members volunteer at various locations in the Sheboygan community.

Last year, Chi Nu members Chloe Reed and Janel Weir each received $2,500 scholarships from Sigma Delta Pi (in its 97th year of existence) to study at the University of San Jose in San Pedro, Costa Rica.
