Party of the Century: Sigma Pi Sigma Centennial Celebration


Kayla Stephens, Assistant Director, SPS, and Mikayla Cleaver, Programs Coordinator, SPS

On December 11, 1921, Sigma Pi Sigma, the physics honor society, was founded at Davidson College in North Carolina. Over the past 100 years, we have accomplished so much and evolved into an organization our founders would still be proud of. If they were here today, they would want us to celebrate!

Join SPS and Sigma Pi Sigma on December 11, 2021, to celebrate 100 Years of Momentum. This event will be the kickoff party of the century! There will be SPS party supplies, service award announcements, and a video featuring special guest speaker Willie Rockward, a former Sigma Pi Sigma president, former NSBP president, and Morgan State University physics and department chair.

We invite all SPS and Sigma Pi Sigma chapters across the country to gather together, whether in person or virtually, to help us celebrate! SPS National will be providing boxes filled with SPS- and Sigma Pi Sigma–themed swag and party supplies. Chapters are encouraged to plan their parties anytime beginning November 1 and leading up to the big event on December 11. Take plenty of photos and post them to social media, tagging @SPSNational.

In this spirit of celebration, we encourage chapters to nominate people who have made a difference to them for SPS and Sigma Pi Sigma Service Awards. Recipients will be recognized during the session on December 11. We hope to see you there!
