What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
Page 6 - Wednesday, November 3, 1993 -- The WëSCOlite Kappa Delta Pi inducts many by Laura Kat Hawkins An innovative pledge took place last Wednesday night as eighteen initiates were sworn in to Mu Phi Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi, by the light of a video convocation created by Mike Schultz and the library staff. Requirements for membership are a 3.00 GPA or higher, Education ma jor, with junior or senior standing, recommendation of an education fac ulty member, campus involvement, and dedication to KDP ideals. The mission of Kappa Delta Pi: recog nizes scholarship and excellence in education; promotes the development and dissemination of worthy educa tional ideals and practices; enhances the continuous professional growth and leadership of its diverse mem bership; fosters inquiry and reflec tion on significant educational issues; and maintains a high degree of pro fessional fellowship. Mike Schultz, a former student member, has been Counselor for the Mu Phi chapter at Western for four years, and this year, Alison Boyer joins him. Faculty in the Education i Department will take an active role as advisors and mentors to mem bers. Kappa Delta Pi offers scholar ships: Presidential - $500, Student Teaching - $250, and graduate schol arships. Mu Phi, Western’s charter, offers a $200 scholarship, for one student or divided between two. The newly elected officers are: President - Lisa Boka; VP - Ann Haas; Sect’y/Treasurers - Joan Carroll and Kami Johnson; Histori ans - JoLyn Pyrah and Heather Rust. Leah Molton proved the value of belonging to KDP, when she re counted an adventure she had re cently in Israel. She attempted to get through customs and was questioned extensively: “why are you here, how long did you stay, how much money did you spend, why Israel...” Finally, the customs officer saw the small KDP pin Leah wore on her collar. “Are you an educator?” “Yes, I am,” Leah replied. “What do you teach?” “History,” she answered, trying to gauge a reaction. “World history?” came the de lighted question. “Yes!” “Good. Then you will teach about the holocaust so the world will not forget,” reminded her interrogator. “Go ahead!” The lesson in this? It pays to be identified with KDP. The yearly convocation with the theme “Celebrating Diversity” is March 24-26 in Orlando, Florida. Mu Phi has a budget of $300 to send a member. The regional convocation is in Spokane on November 6th this year. MSU is the only other chapter of Kappa Delta Pi in Montana, and they are taking a vehicle to attend the event in Spokane. Mike suggested that we could arrange to attend as well. New Members are: Mark Ayers, Lisa Boka, Charee Bourassa, Tricia Brown, Joan Carroll, Lyn Carver, Jani Clark, Rebecca Eckhardt, Meredith Feddes, Tammi Francis, Lynnette Goddard, Ann Haas, Laura Kat Hawkins, Kevin Hill, Terina Hill, Kami Johnson, Melissa LaBarre, Christine Longin, Darren Mason, Randy O’Leary, Jennifer Parrow, Dennis Pings, Darla Pust, JoLyn Pyrah, Heather Rust, Laura May Simmons, Carol Smith, Matt Stanchfield, Colette (Jones) Stenerson, Janelle Van Hise and Marla Jane Vogt. The new President, Lisa Boka, took suggestions for the chapter’s direction. The membership was unanimous in wanting to be active, rather than honorary this year, and many ideas for service, hiring speak ers and other issues were raised. The next meeting will be announced in this newspaper. Anyone who is a member and has not received the publications The New Teacher Ad vocate and the Kappa Delta Pi Record can call 1-800-284-3167 to inquire.
