Kappa Delta Pi is an International Honor Society for students studying education. It was founded in 1911 to foster excellence in education and promote fellowship among those dedicated to teaching. For over a century, the honor society has consistently grown to become the international organization it is today, with a membership exceeding 1.2 million!
Monthly chapter meetings were held via Zoom to allow members to share their voice and enhance the lives of their students. Their passion and compassion for others is certainly contagious.
