Sigma Tau Delta Spring Surprise

By Lindsay Cameron, President of Sigma Tau Delta

During the months of February and March, members of Sigma Tau Delta collaborated to surprise their professors with gifts to show how grateful they are to learn under their care.  Professors came to work noticing hallways full of the colored gift bags in their wall baskets.  Inside the bags were notes of appreciation from students printed on scrapbook paper, candles, chocolates, and sponges to signify the students' ability to "soak up" the wealth of knowledge, inspiration, and wisdom the professors leave for them.  

After much planning, writing, emailing, and shopping, the crew met on Easter Sunday night to print the notes, build the sponges, and assemble the bags.  While only a few are pictured in the photo story below, at least half the honor society was involved in the project.  Not pictured is Erika Gallion, who also helped assemble bags.  The crew chose scrapbook paper and candle flavor according to the professor's personality, and then delivered the bags that night.
The next morning, on April 1, the professors found their surprises, which were well received!
