Achieving Chapter Excellence (ACE)

Many chapters have exceptional programming. Others have fantastic leaders. Still others have active and highly involved members. It takes a very special chapter to excel at all three. For these particular chapters, KDP offers the opportunity to earn recognition through the Achieving Chapter Excellence Award, or the ACE. The highest scoring of all entries is named the Dr. Florence B. Stratemeyer Award for Chapter Excellence.

Dr. Florence B. Stratemeyer Award!

With over 650 active chapters internationally, we are honored to have been selected to receive this recognition. We are continuously inspired by the exceptional chapters who win the ACE Awards each biennium. Within the Cato College of Education, our Omicron Pi Chapter upholds the mission and vision of Kappa Delta Pi by growing our teacher education candidates professionally as they prepare to teach all learners. We strive to continuously build bridges to quality learning for all.
