At the annual meeting of the American Association of Teachers of German, Dr. James C. Davidheiser officially took over the office of President of Delta Phi Alpha, the National German Honor Society, a group which includes German departments at hundreds of colleges and universities across the United States. Last year 900 new student members with high grades in German and overall were inducted into the national organization and pledged to persevere in their German studies and support the advancement of students' knowledge of German culture in the USA. Each year Sewanee inducts its own members in April at a festive ceremony in the German House.
