Founders Award—Dr. Thomas E. Musselman Award

Founders Award

Dr. Thomas E. Musselman

Dr. Thomas E. Musselman Award for Service Excellence

This award will be given to an individual who has demonstrated a sustained effort in service excellence within Kappa Delta Pi and the education profession at the local, national and/or global level.

Dr. Thomas E. Musselman (1887–1976) was president of the Illinois Education Club at the time the club was exploring the possibility of merging with other clubs on a national level. He helped ensure that the ideals of coeducational membership and scholarship as an educator without regard to any racial, religious or other restrictions were upheld. By adhering to these ideals, the club did not merge with other fraternities, but became a national honorary education society, Kappa Delta Pi. Dr. Musselman went on to become an educator, organizer, businessman, and naturalist during his lifetime.
