Education honor society earns excellence award
Press Release

August, 2009

SAN MARCOS – The Kappa Delta Pi chapter at Texas State University-San Marcos will receive its second consecutive Achieving Chapter Excellence award at the KDP national conference in October in Orlando, Fla.

Kappa Delta Pi, an international honor society in the College of Education, presents these awards each biennium to those chapters that meet the stringent criteria and demonstrate excellence and dedication to the organization’s ideals.

Founded in 1951, the Texas State chapter currently has more than 200 members.

“The local Kappa Delta Pi chapter is very active,” said Nathan Bond, associate professor and president-elect of the Texas State chapter. “Our work centers on the following four areas: recognizing academic excellence in students, cultivating leadership skills, providing ongoing professional development for our members and completing service projects.”

To be considered for the award, chapters must submit a portfolio that documents their activities throughout the two-year period. ACE awards are given to those chapters that have documented the specified criteria at an achievement level of acceptable, excellent or exemplary according to the scoring rubric. Only 29 out of 667 chapters were named ACE award winners this biennium.

“This national award is a great testimony to the collective efforts of the students, faculty, staff and administrators in our college and department,” Bond said.
