October is Alpha Delta Kappa Month

Alpha Delta Kappa (ADK) is an international honorary organization of women educators dedicated to educational excellence, altruism and world understanding.

The local chapter of ADK, Alpha Phi, encompasses the school districts of Park Rapids, Nevis, Menahga and Sebeka.

This organization exists to support local communities (e.g., public and school libraries, food shelf, HIC, Kinship, Food Angels, etc.) and the mission of the international organization (e.g., St. Jude’s, Alzheimer’s Association, etc.).

The sisters of Alpha Phi promote professional growth and educational enrichment with diverse monthly programs and enjoy personal and social experiences together (summer mystery trips, crafts, boat rides, theater, arts, sight-seeing, etc.) as well.

Additionally, the group awards one or two annual $500 scholarship(s) to area college students who are preparing to enter the professional field of teaching and have been accepted into the preparation program in their chosen education field.

To date, Alpha Phi has awarded over $20,000 in scholarships to local high school graduates that have chosen education as their career.

There are also opportunities for current teachers (ADK members or non-members) to apply for grants/scholarships for use in their classrooms.

For more information regarding membership or scholarship opportunities, contact Laurie Conzemius at 320-241-6150.
