Kappa Delta Pi

The Kappa Delta Pi educational honor society formed in 1906 to recognize distinction of both men and women in education. Nomination for membership is based upon academic achievement and leadership qualities. For undergraduate students, a 3.2 minimum GPA is required; for graduate students a minimum GPA of 3.5 is required. The honor society recently inducted members include: Ivette A Chavez, Alicia D. Compton, Lauren K. David, Anna D. Eller, Jennifer Freese, Melanie Gillespy, Jennifer M. Sirridge, Joel Sutton, Lindsey Whitham.

In addition to inducting new members, the honor society underwent a change of leadership last fall; Melanie Gillespy became the acting president of Kappa Delta Pi when former president Joel Sutton resigned to take a teaching position at Memorial High. The honor society also held a very successful book fair at the Allen Chapman Activity Center in connection with Holiday Happening; another book fair will be held during this event on November 28 and 29, 2006. And finally, the Gamma Kappa Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi, which was installed at The University of Tulsa in 1935, is celebrating its 75th Anniversary in May.
