DeAnna Laverick, Professional Studies in Education, was recognized by the executive director and society president for her excellence as the IUP chapter counselor of the student organization of Kappa Delta Pi.
Kappa Delta Pi (KDP) is an international honor society in education. KDP, founded by William Bagley in 1911 at the University of Illinois, was established to foster excellence in education and promote fellowship among those dedicated to teaching. The founders chose the name from the Greek words to represent knowledge, duty, and power. Pioneering from its beginning by including women as well as men, Kappa Delta Pi grew from a local chapter to the international organization it is today, comprising 600 chapters and more than 40,000 members.
