Agricultural honor society recognized at international conclave

By Jason Ellis

The Kansas State University Eta chapter of Gamma Sigma Delta Agriculture Honor Society was recently recognized as a Silver Award chapter at the 55th biennial International Conclave at Louisiana State University.

Chapter awards are given in three levels — Gold, Silver and Bronze — based on chapter activity of awards, membership development, service to the college, discipline and community. The K-State chapter, founded in 1914, will host the 56th International Conclave in summer 2018.

Gamma Sigma Delta is an international honor society of agriculture dedicated to excellence in scholarship, research and service. Founded in 1907, there are currently 48 chapters in the U.S., Honduras, Puerto Rico and the Philippines. The mission of Gamma Sigma Delta is to encourage high standards of scholarship, character and proficiency in all branches of agricultural science and education and a high degree of excellence in the practice of agricultural pursuits.
