Alpha Epsilon Phi Members Win Literacy Alive! Bronze Achievement Award.


The Ferrum College Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi was recognized for their spring library program “Reading Around Seussville.”

Ferrum, Va. (September 18, 2012) – The Ferrum College Alpha Epsilon Phi Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi recently won the Literacy Alive! Bronze Achievement Award for its program entitled “Reading Around Seussville,” which members produced late last spring at the Franklin County Library. Chosen from among all Kappa Delta Pi chapter participants, the College Chapter received a certificate and cash award to recognize its accomplishments.

Kappa Delta Pi, International Honor Society in Education, was established in 1911 to foster excellence in education and promote fellowship among those dedicated to teaching. Literacy Alive! is Kappa Delta Pi’s signature service initiative that invites members to create programs and events within their communities empowering literacy skills in program participants.

Student led and driven, the Alpha Epsilon Phi chapter at Ferrum College is a 2010 charter member of Kappa Delta Pi. For their Literacy Alive! “Reading Around Seussville” program, members read Dr. Seuss books, brought Seuss themed snacks, and did craft projects with the children.

“The idea for this Literacy Alive! project came from the past president Jacklyn McAden, who graduated in the spring,” explained current Alpha Epsilon Phi President Kasey Davis. “We worked with our club members to make this program a success and plan to do another Literacy Alive! event in the spring at the library as well.”
