Education Honor Society Inducts 20 New Members at DeSales, Sat., Nov. 12

DeSales University welcomed 20 new members and installed four new officers into the Alpha Alpha Chi Chapter of the Kappa Delta Pi International Honor Society for Education at 4 p.m., Friday, Nov. 12 in the Wills Hall Chapel. The event was open to invited families and friends of the inductees and also to other members of the Kappa Delta Pi chapters only.

The chapter counselors, Dr. Robert Legutko, assistant professor of education at DeSales, and Rev. Robert Mulligan, OSFS, instructor and director of secondary education at DeSales, honored the new inductees and officers. Also, Dr. Robert Blumenstein, education department chair and undergraduate and graduate dean of education, was this fall's keynote speaker.

Students must maintain a 3.25 GPA, for undergraduates, and a 3.5 GPA, for graduates in the area of education, and must have at least a second semester sophomore status in order to participate in the chapter's service projects. Members of the chapter take part in helping other events on campus such as, Special Olympics and the Natural Science Club's Environmental Day. Students in the society are nominated by other students and professors, and then are reviewed by a committee. The Alpha Alpha Chi chapter at DeSales was founded in November 2002.
