Dr. William Johnson, Executive Director of Sigma Tau Delta and Professor of English at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois, suggested a new national English honor society designed especially for two-year college students under the direction of Sigma Tau Delta; ΣΤΔ’s Board graciously agreed. Thus, Sigma Kappa Delta was founded when Dr. Johnson invited four two-year college instructors to meet April 18-21, 1996, at the Chicago Allerton hotel.

ESA’s unique programs provide each member with the training, education, and support they need to promote successful public service, while developing personal and professional skills in management, public relations, and overall leadership. ESA members are people who want to make a difference, who welcome challenges, and are gratified by personal involvement. They enjoy working with others, and are touched by the testimonials of others. They are particularly interested in causes that affect families, children in particular. They respond readily to individuals and are especially supportive of fellow members. The words caring and sharing are important to ESA members as these words have come to characterize the basic spirit of the membership. ESA members are people who care enough to share. Membership success and satisfaction are measured by the degree to which individual members and chapters have been able to achieve positive ideals.
While the orientation of how to achieve these ideals has changed over the years, the basic spirit of ESA has remained constant over its more than 75 year history. More information is available at http://esaintl.com. Contact Dr. Joyce Reed for more information at (309) 268-4309 or email@example.com.

Founded in 2012 by two ABE students, we provide a safe, social and educational atmosphere for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, Questioning and their Allies (LGBTQA). We incorporate nondiscrimination not just on the basis of sexual orientation, but also race, color, religion, sex, gender identity, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, disability and military or veteran status. Our group includes all students that are traditional, ABE and MCC along with staff, faculty and alumni of Lincoln College-Normal and surrounding community members. Our goals are to socialize and educate others in a safe, fun and positive manner.
We support other community organizations and help plan social events involving them. We are planning to invite successful and professional individuals of the LGBTQA community to come and share their life stories; which in turn enhances our lives during and after college. Contact us at email@example.com or our Facebook page: LCN Pride.
