Welcome to the Rho Zeta Chapter of Sigma!
The Rho Zeta Chapter of Sigma was first established in 1982 at Southeastern Louisiana University School of Nursing and rechartered in 1999. On September 24, 1999, Sigma inducted 95 members. Those members were inducted under the following categories: Founding, Community, Undergraduate, Graduate, and Alumni. After many months of dedicated planning and organizing, Southeastern Louisiana University Honor Society of Nursing officially became the Rho Zeta Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing. The chartering ceremony took place on Friday, March 8th at the Southeastern Student Union Theater.
Dr. Peggy Ellis, a representative from Sigma, was the inducting officer for the ceremony. There were 139 members installed at the Chartering Ceremony, including new members, transfer and dual members. Dr. Mary Coyne, President of Gamma Lambda, our sister chapter was also present at the ceremony.
Dr. Randy Moffett, SLU President, and Dr. John Crain, SLU Provost also attended. Dr. Donnie Booth, Dean of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences, assisted with the induction of new members. Jennifer Robinson served as President of the new Rho Zeta Chapter.
