SPRINGFIELD – Seven students in the Teacher Education program at the University of Illinois at Springfield – Nicole DiGiovanna, Deborah Eytchison, Megan Hayes, Kiersten Lynch, Marjorie Reynolds, Erica Viets, and Bond Wyman – have been inducted into Kappa Delta Pi, an international honor society in education.
To be selected for Kappa Delta Pi, students must exhibit high academic achievement, commitment to a career in education, and a professional attitude that promises steady growth in the profession.
Allan Cook, associate professor of Teacher Education and counselor for the UIS chapter, observed, “This year’s inductees reflect some of the best candidates and alumni of the Teacher Education program. Their decision to become teachers honors the profession.”
Founded in 1904, Kappa Delta Pi is committed to recognizing excellence and fostering mutual cooperation, support, and professional growth for educational professionals.
