Kappa Delta Pi
Kappa Delta Pi, Pi Delta Chapter
Kappa Delta Pi, Pi Delta Chapter is the education honorary society at Bethune-Cookman University. Members must maintain a 3.0+ GPA and have recommendations for membership from faculty and officers. Pi Delta Chapter received its charter in 1982. Kappa Delta Pi focuses on “Literacy Alive”, which is a nationwide reading/literacy initiative for the 156 chapters of Kappa Delta Pi at all of the university sites. At the 2015 National Convention in Orlando, Pi Delta Chapter was recently awarded the coveted “Bronze Literacy Alive Award” for outstanding projects and service in the promotion of literacy in underserved populations. Their main project for 2014-2015 was “Books and Bears” in conjunction with the Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Foundation at the Swisher Library. This was a monthly literacy-themed story time for children in the 32114 zip code. Some of the themes included “Spooky Spiders”, “Mittens”, “A Royal Affair”, “Applicious” and many more. This year their efforts will not only include the monthly “Books and Bears”, but also a book drive to give out books to children who may not have them in their homes.
