Strategic Planning for the nursing honor society commenced in 1991 with the College's Honor and Research Committee obtaining guidelines from STTI for establishment of an honor society. The Nursing Honor Society held its first induction ceremony on May 3, 1993.  The Nursing Honor Society grew and flourished as the College of Nursing pursued its initial regional and nursing accreditations. In 1995, the Nursing Honor Society was invited to active participation in the Atlanta Area Consortium of Sigma Theta Tau International Chapters. In the fall of 1996, a scholarship/research fund was implemented with the long term goal of providing final awards to support nursing scholarship and research.  On September 23, 1996, the Nursing Honor Society submitted application to become a chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International. Upon review of the application, the International Eligibility Committee notified the Nursing Honor Society that it had been approved for a site visit. In April 1997, Dr. Mary Lou Bond conducted the site visit which concluded with her recommendation to the STTI Board of Directors that our Nursing Honor Society be approved for presentation to the STTI House of Delegates at the 1997 STTI Biennial Convention.  (Picture: Dr. Susan Gunby, presents the first Susan Sweat Gunby Award to Dr. Sandra Rayburn, during induction ceremony, December, 2014).

May 18, 1998, the Nursing Honor Society was officially chartered as the Pi Gamma Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International. The Installing Officer was Dr. Pam Levi, RN, EdD, a STTI Director. The Nursing Honor Society had submitted a special request for Dr. Levi to serve as the installing officer because of her special relationship to the College of Nursing and Nursing Honor Society. Dr. Levi, Dean of the College of Health Sciences & Professor of Nursing Informatics at Georgia College & State University, is an alumna of a graduate of Georgia Baptist Hospital School of Nursing. She had provided support to the Nursing Honor Society during its development and throughout the charter application process. Additionally, the STTI Chapter at Georgia College & State University, Theta Tau, served as our mentor chapter.  

In 2013, the Pi Gamma Chapter celebrated its 15 year anniversary!  Founded on October 5, 1922, STTI celebrates 90 years as an international honor society for nursing.  Pictured below are 2014 newly inducted members who attended the December 2014 Induction Ceremony.
