Cultivating Fellowship: Pearl James & Katie Cross of Sigma Tau Delta

The University of Kentucky chapter of Sigma Tau Delta—an honor society for students majoring in English—has a lot on its plate. While not entirely new to campus, it has returned to UK with a renewed focus on cultivating fellowship between English majors while also expanding the reach of the department and its students into the Lexington community.
 
At its helm is English Professor Pearl James and student President Katie Cross. In this podcast, they discuss Sigma Tau Delta’s renewed role at UK, highlight the importance of community, and talk about how they hope to put their own UK-stamp on the organization.
