Three English students and a faculty member from Williams Baptist College made their way to Pittsburgh, Penn., earlier this semester. They attended the annual convention of Sigma Tau Delta, the international English honor society.

Two of the Williams students, Rachel Sullinger and Shalicia Wilson, participated in the convention by presenting critical essays. Their works had been accepted for presentation prior to the event.

Sullinger, a senior from Pocahontas, Ark., presented an essay entitled "Robert Browning: Controlling Lovers and Jealousy." She is married to Lance Sullinger, and she is the daughter of Steve and Imogene Baldwin of Jonesboro, Ark.

Wilson, who is a junior from Hoxie, Ark., read her essay, "Emma: Much More Than a Typical Austen Heroine." She is the daughter of Danny and Virrika Wilson of Hoxie.

Also attending the convention was Jessie Midgett, a senior from Hoxie. He is the son of Eddie and Kathy Midgett of Hoxie.

All three students are majoring in English education at WBC. They were accompanied on the trip by Dr. Steven Harthorn of the Williams English faculty. The convention was held March 23-26.
