November 29, 2018 – Nine King’s College students were recently inducted into the Tau Pi Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi, the international honor society for education.

To be a candidate for induction, a student must have at least a 3.5 grade point average, a commitment to education as a career and a “professional attitude which assures the members steady growth in the field of education.”

President of King’s College, Father Jack Ryan, C.S.C., was on hand to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the ceremony. He acknowledged the important role that teachers play in molding young people, stating, “Teaching is a noble career which can transform society and prepare our future leaders.”

Also honored this year was recent education department retiree, Dr. Laurie Ayre. Past Tau Pi officers individually paid tribute to Ayre, recognizing the impact she had on their lives as students and individuals.
