The 2019 recipient of the Dr. Eldo L. Hendricks Award for Excellence in Scholarship and Programming was the Beta Sigma Chapter. The Chapter hosts an annual panel discussion; last year was focused on mental health awareness and the controversial show, 13 Reasons Why. Topics discussed included its impact on society's outlook on mental health, depression among young people, the stigma that clouds this issue, and the regulation of emotion, mentality, and behavior across cultures. The Chapter invited members of the campus and the local community to attend the panel, which consisted of three university faculty as panelists. Afterward, they shared additional informational resources and where individuals could go to for additional support.
