Sigma Delta Pi Announces its 80th Anniversary Edition of _Entre Nosotros_: Primavera 2019

2019 not only marks the centennial of Sigma Delta Pi (1919-2019),
but it also represents the 80th anniversary of our national publication, Entre Nosotros.
To commemorate 80 years of the Society’s publication, we are pleased to release the spring 2019 issue with a “throwback” cover
that echoes the very first issue of Entre Nosotros published in March 1939.

Sigma Delta Pi’s current centennial celebration also recognizes its long-standing partner: the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.  As part of the ongoing research for the upcoming (summer 2020) book on Sigma Delta Pi’s 100-year history (1919-2019), a “Special Note” has just been published in the March 2019 issue of Hispania that outlines some of the many historical ties between the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society and the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese:
