Kappa Delta Pi plan events for spring semester

The officers of Marshall University’s Kappa Delta Pi chapter met Monday to discuss its spring semester activities.

Chapter president Katherine Lyell said she is excited for this semester and all it has to offer.

“I’m really excited about Kappa Delta Pi because we are reviving our chapter to reach out to the community, grow as a chapter and network as future educators,” Lyell said, “This semester looks promising.”

The KDP Candy Gram event kicks February off. The chapter plans to sell Candy Grams from February 7 – 11.

Kappa Delta Pi’s Spring Initiation is Feb. 11 at 6:30 p.m. in the John Marshall Room of the Memorial Student Center.

At the event, 21 current members will be reinitiated into the organization, while six or seven new members will be initiated. Membership Chair Chase Dye coordinated the event. Dye said he is looking forward to inducting this class.

“I’m really excited,” Dye said. “This is my first time running initiation. It’s thrilling to be able to do this.”

Dye said he is happy to be initiating this large group and being able to have parents at the initiation.

Also, discussed at the meeting was election interest. Members of Kappa Delta Pi, who met the requirements may run for an office within the chapter. Applications need to be turned in soon for review. Campaigning takes place Feb. 12 through 16.

Kappa Delta Pi will be hosting a Meet and Greet Feb. 16, where candidates for officer positions will be able to speak to the members.

The election day will be held Feb. 17. All ballots must be turned in by the time and date announced, no exceptions.

Kappa Delta Pi will be selling t-shirts at some point in the semester for  members.

Events coming up in March include the KDP Penny War and Pi Day, where a professor will be pied in the face.
