Eight inducted into International Education Honor Society at Glenville State University

GLENVILLE, WV – Eight Glenville State University students have been installed as new members of the international education honor society, Kappa Delta Pi (KDP).

The students all took the oath as the newest KDP members at a ceremony held on campus at the end of the Spring semester. Those inducted included: Abigail Taylor, Madison Shepherd, Heather Sears, Emily Lewis, Cameron Knopp, Samantha Hall, Myrtle Copen, and Stormie Alverson.

Membership in GSU’s chapter – the Kappa Omicron chapter – is by invitation only. To receive an invitation to join, prospective members must be fully admitted into the teacher education program, have at least 12 credit hours in educational courses programmed, in progress, or completed, have completed at least 30 credit hours of collegiate course work, have a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or greater, and must exhibit commendable personal qualities and worthy educational ideals.

The Kappa Omicron chapter of KDP was established in 1966 by then-Education Department Chairman Dr. Wendell Hardway. GSU’s chapter is currently co-counseled by Dr. Gerda Kumpiene and Dr. Will Vann.

“I am very happy to see these students become our newest members of the Kappa Omicron chapter of KDP. This is an outstanding organization and I know that these future educators will uphold our reputation for producing skilled, reflective, and responsive teaching professionals through word and deed,” said Dean of Education, Connie Stout O’Dell.

Kappa Delta Pi was founded in 1911 to foster excellence in education and promote fellowship among those dedicated to teaching. The mission of KDP is to advance quality education by inspiring teachers to prepare all learners for future challenges. Members of KDP receive access to exclusive resources including publications, classroom materials, webinars, and scholarships and grants.
