The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International is a professional honorary society of women educators. The Society promotes professional and personal growth of its members and excellence in education.
Established in 1929, Delta Kappa Gamma has attained major objectives in improving opportunities for qualified women employed at every level of education, as well as in advancing the status of women educators. Warren established a chapter, Alpha Mu, in January 1937. The Pennsylvania chapter, Alpha Alpha State, celebrated its 75th anniversary at the annual convention in State College over the June 8-10 weekend. Highlights for the weekend for Alpha Mu Chapter were the passing of the presidential leadership from Ann Ryan to Gloria Werner and recognition of four past officers. Mrs. Werner will be the president of Alpha Mu for the next two years. The four past officers of Alpha Mu were awarded Enrichment Grants.
Enrichment Grants are awarded each year to active members for three years in good standing who wish to enroll in an Elderhostel Program, continuing education for personal and professional growth, a travel/study tour, or to develop an approved independent study project, or to present a paper to a professional organization. Following the application process, grants were awarded to Terry Borger, Linda Falconer, Judy Gibson, and Julie Myler totaling $7,000. These women will use their monies to spend a week at Chautauqua Institution. A week at Chautauqua will allow them the opportunity for education, reflection, and renewal to meet their personal and professional goals as well as many of the Seven Purposes of Delta Kappa Gamma.
