Women educators group tours schools, welcomes new members

May 01, 2010

Members of Sigma Chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa have enjoyed several events since the beginning of the year.

In January, World Understanding chair Anne Wilson captivated members with tales of her summer's journey to China to visit her son using personal anecdotes, artifacts and amusing stories.

Founders Day was celebrated in February with Dr. Patricia Leonard, a charter member of Sigma, relating the history of the formation of the chapter and sharing many memories about former charter members who are still living in Hagerstown as well as a past international student that Sigma sponsored and other altruistic and educational endeavors.

Wilson described the post-earthquake activity in Haiti and the fundraising efforts at her school, Pangborn Elementary School.

At the March meeting held at Rockland Woods Elementary School, new members Kathy Stiles and Jaime Mason were initiated. The members appreciated the beauty and function of the new school during a tour guided by Stiles, the school's principal.

Another new school was viewed by the educators in an April tour of the Barbara Ingram School for the Arts, led by students Michael Hollin and Brianna Arneman.

Another new member, Jeanne "Dusty" Graham, was inducted.

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