The honor society was founded in 1911 at the University of Illinois to foster excellence in education and promote fellowship among those dedicated to teaching.
Local KDP president Sr. Maria Weiss, ’13, and secretary Sarah Switek, ’13, led the induction ceremony that honors students for their outstanding scholastic achievements. More than 100 guests of the inductees attended the ceremonies.
Guest speakers for the evening were Dr. Marisa King, supervisor for social studies, business, and practical arts for the Teaneck School District, and a graduate of the Ed.D. in Educational Leadership Program at CSE, and Ms. Denise Blaine, teacher aide at Canfield School in Mine Hill and past president of KDP.
