On Wednesday, Brazil Mayor Ann Bradshaw signed a proclamation declaring the month of October as International Alpha Delta Kappa Month.

Representatives from Alpha Delta Kappa were on hand for the signing.

The organization states its major goals include giving recognition to outstanding educators, building a fraternal fellowship among educators adding to their effectiveness in promoting excellence in education, establishing high standards of education, and promoting educational and charitable projects and activities enriching lives of individuals everywhere and assisting these individuals into happy, constructive and fulfilling lives.

In 2007, the local chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa teaching sorority was awarded the 7 Pearls Award by the organization's national association.

The local chapter was one of nine chapters in Indiana that received the award.

In order to obtain the award, the XI chapter had to meet criteria, including meeting membership goals, attending conventions and submitting reports in a timely manner.

Alpha Delta Kappa celebrates October as Founders' month.

The regional Founders' Day celebration took place at Mario Bros., Oct. 1, with the XI chapter hosting. Regional chapters attended the meeting along with the state president.
