The student honorary societies Sigma Tau Chi (STX) and Alpha Sigma (AS) recognize student members of the Society who have distinguished themselves as students and have demonstrated promise of future contributions to the Society and the profession.
Membership in STX is an honor given to students enrolled in a program in technical communication, who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or above, are exemplary in participation in STC, and demonstrate a potential for significant contribution to the profession.
Membership in AS is an honor given to students enrolled in a program in technical communication who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or above, demonstrate active participation in STC, and have the potential to contribute to the profession.
Membership is awarded only once and honorees retain the membership only as long as they are members in good standing of the Society.
The 2021 inductees are:
- Sigma Tau Chi: Nathan Richardson, University of Maine
- Alpha Sigma: Julia Barnes, Michigan Technological University
Thank you to the STX/AS Honor Societies Committee (Michael McCarthy (Chair), Dr. Julie Gerdes, Dr. Leah Heilig, and Dr. Kylie Jacobsen) for their work on this.
