Local Phi Chapter celebrates Alpha Delta Kappa Month

Women’s organization continues to volunteer, award scholarships

Special to the Press

Charles City Mayor Jim Erb recently proclaimed October as Alpha Delta Kappa Month.

Alpha Delta Kappa is an international honorary organization for women educators.

The Charles City Phi chapter currently has forty three members.

Members combine their time to enrich lives of people with community based projects. Three Phi members serve at the state and International level; Susan Jacob is Iowa’s State President, Judy Mulcahy serves as State Recording Secretary and Linda Hughes is serving as a member of the International Executive Board.

Alpha Delta Kappa members are committed to improving and promoting the teaching profession through local scholarships, professional and personal development at conventions and conferences, and promoting world understanding.

The Phi chapter last year presented three scholarships to a senior at Charles City, RRMR and Nashua-Plainfield. The chapter also donated money to the International World Understanding Project supporting a bookmobile and education program on the Cheyenne River Lakota/Sioux Reservation in South Dakota.

Several activities have taken place during the month of October for members to celebrate their membership in Alpha Delta Kappa and to serve their community.

Several members attended the District meeting that was hosted by the Cedar Falls chapter at the Cedar Falls Women’s Club. Several members enjoyed a fall outing and toured the Mayowood Home in Rochester followed by lunch at Victoria’s Restaurant. Members continued the month’s activities by participating in the Spookwalk and also giving thank you snacks to all teachers in Charles City, RRMR and Nashua-Plainfield schools for their dedication to the students in their districts.
