October 2017 was proclaimed International Alpha Delta Kappa month, an honorary organization for women educators, by U.S. Rep. Buddy Carter at the Liberty County Board of Education Thursday.
Board of Education member Dr. Yvette Keel is the immediate past state president of the teacher sorority, which is celebrating 70 years since it was founded.
Alpha Delta Kappa connects women educators together and helps others through community-based projects locally and abroad.
Members from nearby local chapters gathered at the board office for the proclamation and shared with Carter the purpose of the organization.
Before Carter’s arrival, a proclamation was read and signed by Liberty County School System Chief Academic Officer Patti Crane who filled in for Interim Superintendent Dr. Franklin Perry who could not attend the event.
Later Carter was joined by Hinesville Mayor Allen Brown for the congressman’s turn to acknowledge the sorority.
Afterwards members talked with Carter about their experiences in the organization and took photos.
