KAPPA DELTA PI, INTERNATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY IN EDUCATION, INDUCTS 68 NEW MEMBERS
Philadelphia, PA— Kappa Delta Pi, International Honor Society in Education, is pleased to announce that 68 members have been invited and inducted into its ranks through the Alpha Alpha Nu Chapter of Temple University College of Education.
The initiation ceremony will take place Friday, October 9, 2015, from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Walk Auditorium where we will welcome with great pride two new honorary members: Christa Rossi, Class of 2019, and Professor Emeritus Ken Thurman.
The Society inducts only those individuals who have exhibited the ideals of scholarship, integrity in service, and commitment to excellence in teaching and its allied professions. Selection as a member of Kappa Delta Pi is based on high academic achievement, a commitment to education as a career, and a professional attitude that assures steady growth in the profession. At Temple University undergraduate members must earn a cumulative GPA of 3.35 and graduate members 3.85. However, students inducted this Fall have surpassed this requirement.
“I am personally excited to welcome all of our new members in the highest of honor societies for the field of education. I have had so many wonderful opportunities to grow and reach out to my community through this organization, and I am honored that these new members will share in the experience.”
-Joseph Claffey, Vice President
