Alpha Delta Kappa was
founded in 1947 by Agnes Shipman Robertson, Hattie Poppino, Marie Neal,
and Marion Southall. These visionary women saw a need to recognize and
support the professional efforts of outstanding women educators.
For more than forty
years, over 125,000 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.
