City of Troy declares October ‘Alpha Delta Kappa’ month

Troy Mayor Jason A. Reeves signed a proclamation declaring the month of October 2017 Alpha Delta Kappa Month in the City of Troy.

Alpha Delta Kappa is an International Honor Society for Women Educators that was founded in 1947 and is headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri.

“Alpha Delta Kappa is designed to implement altruistic and scholarship programs and to promote world peace, harmony and understanding though education,” Reeves said. “In proclaiming the month of October Alpha Delta Kappa Month in Troy, we salute the contributions of women educators to the health and well-being of all citizens.”

Alpha Delta Kappa has more than 1,300 chapters located in towns and cities in every state in the United States and around the world in Australia, Canada, Jamaica, Mexico and Puerto Rico.

More than 33,000 women educators around the world have discovered the many opportunities provided by membership in Alpha Delta Kappa – opportunities for recognition of their commitment to educational excellence, for personal and professional growth and for collectively channeling their energies toward the good of their school, communities, the teaching profession and the world.

The key goals of Alpha Delta Kappa are to encourage the personal and professional growth of educators, to build a fraternal fellowship among educators adding to their effectiveness in promoting excellence in education and to promote educational, cultural and charitable projects that enrich the lives of individuals.
