The Kershaw County chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa Alpha Psi will celebrate its 25th anniversary Monday at Carolina Café at 6 p.m. The silver anniversary dinner will honor past and present sorority members for their service in education to the community.

Alpha Delta Kappa is an international honorary organization of women educators dedicated to educational excellence, altruism and world understanding. October is also recognized nationally as being Alpha Delta Kappa month.

The Kershaw County chapter was founded in 1986 with 22 original members. The national organization was founded in 1947 by Agnes Shipman Robertson, Marie Neal, Marion Southall and Hattie Poppino, visionary women who saw a need to recognize and support the professional efforts of outstanding women educators.

More than 40,000 women educators around the world have discovered the many opportunities provided by membership in Alpha Delta Kappa -- opportunities for recognition of their commitment to educational excellence, for personal and professional growth and for collectively channeling their energies toward the good of their schools, communities, the teaching profession and the world. Membership, which is honorary and based on peer recognition, provides a wealth of opportunities for leadership development and networking through workshops, training sessions, conferences and conventions. But, perhaps the greatest opportunity Alpha Delta Kappa provides is the opportunity to make a difference. Around the world, Alpha Delta Kappa members combine their energies and talents to enrich their lives and the lives of others through thousands of heartwarming, community-based altruistic projects.
