Posted: October 9, 2013

The Kappa Delta Pi Educational Foundation selected Gannon University's Phi Zeta Chapter for the 2013 Literacy Alive! Project Achievement Award. Phi Zeta was recognized at the premier level and will receive a $250 monetary award.

According to Robin Quick, D.Ed., assistant professor and program coordinator for graduate reading and ESL certification, Phi Zeta was one of only four chapters internationally designated as a Premier Project.

The Gannon chapter promotes excellence and recognition of outstanding contributions to education. Members must maintain a high degree of professional fellowship, quicken professional growth and honor achievement in educational work.

Quick said that, with this award, both Gannon students and their parents benefit from the program.

"The students have put a great deal of work into the Growing Reading project," Quick said. "Gannon students are not only having a positive impact on the high school students and their children but the Gannon students themselves are gaining insight into working and communicating with parents." 

Kappa Delta Pi  was established to foster excellence in education and promote fellowship among those dedicated to teaching. The Greek letters represent knowledge, duty and power.
