The Epsilon Mu chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa is gearing up for the start of the new school year. The group will be sponsoring membership meetings from September to December in Katy ISD schools. Interested women teachers who have been actively involved in education for at least two years and have been recommended by an Alpha Delta Kappa teacher are eligible for membership.
Chapter president Elizabeth Stelevich recently attended the Texas State Convention in Corpus Christi where teachers from all over the state met to select new officers. Cindy Bigham from League City will serve as the Texas state president for the next biennium.
Alpha Delta Kappa is an international honorary sorority for women educators. Membership, which is honorary and based on peer recognition, provides a wealth of opportunities for leadership development and networking through workshops, training sessions, conferences, and conventions. But, perhaps the greatest opportunity Alpha Delta Kappa provides is the opportunity to make a difference. Around the world, Alpha Delta Kappa members combine their energies and talents to enrich their lives and the lives of others through thousands of heartwarming, community-based altruistic projects.
More than 38,000 members in over 1,400 chapters around the world have discovered the many opportunities provided by membership in Alpha Delta Kappa. Texas is divided into 16 districts, and the Epsilon Mu chapter is proud to serve women educators in Katy ISD.
Locally, the chapter has sponsored scholarships for graduating seniors, organized bingo games at nursing homes and collected socks for the residents, provided materials for the Threads of Love group to create blankets for the NICU nurseries in local hospitals, adopted families at Christmas, and provided funds for a smile train surgery, Katy Christian Ministries, TARC, and the American Heart Association. Recently, members adopted the Krause Center as their holiday project and then helped fund the spring prom. Internationally, the group raises funds for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and the St. Jude Hospital for Research.
