MARYSVILLE — On Monday, Sept. 24, Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring declared October to be Alpha Delta Kappa Appreciation Month, to recognize the local group of women educators for their contributions to the community and education.
The Marysville chapter's altruistic contributions to their community include several dollars and hours of service to the Marysville Community Food Bank, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, St. Joseph's House, Kloz for Kids, the Children's Orthopedic Hospital, the Everett Women and Children's Shelter, Ronald McDonald House and many other charitable projects.
The key goals of the organization are to recognize outstanding educators, to build a fraternal fellowship among educators adding to their effectiveness in promoting excellence in education, and to promote educational, cultural and charitable projects that enrich the lives of individuals.
"We salute the contributions of women educators to the health and well-being of all citizens," Nehring said.
Alpha Delta Kappa International Honorary Sorority for Women Educators was founded in 1947 to recognize and support the professional efforts of outstanding women educators.
