Grove City College’s Tau Alpha Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi, the international education honorary society of practicing and pre-service teachers, has won the group’s 2015 Achieving Chapter Excellence Award.
This is the seventh time the campus chapter of KDP has won the award, which is given only to chapters that demonstrate excellence in membership, leadership development and programming in support of the international society. The Tau Alpha Chapter is one of only two of the over 900 international chapters to have won the award every year since its inception. The award will presented during a ceremony in October at the KDP Convocation in Orlando, Fla.
The chapter has been advised by Sandra Herald, director of the College’s Curriculum Library, Dr. Linda Culbertson and Dr. Sam Fecich, Education Department faculty.
KDP, founded in 1911 at the University of Illinois, seeks to sustain an honored community of diverse educators by promoting excellence and advancing scholarship, leadership and service. Pioneering from its origin by including women as well as men, KDP grew to an international organization, which now comprises 600 chapters and more than 40,000 members.
