Alpha Delta Kappa is an international honorary sorority for women educators. Attending the convention were Ruth James, state chairman of Founder’s Day Committee; Joanne Swafford, president of Alpha Theta Chapter; and Dr. Julie Patterson Mitchell, president-elect. Representing Tennessee were 45 members of ADK.
On July 4, the 2013 Educational Symposium presented seven learning sessions for members’ professional growth and personal enrichment. The Alpha Theta Chapter saluted Dr. Mitchell, who presented two of the learning sessions: “Curious George and the Holocaust: A Curious Connection” and “Learning With Landmarks, Monuments and Memorials.” During the week, members participated in business and learning sessions, and also enjoyed some sightseeing.
Tennessee ADK sisters enjoyed a Capital tour arranged by Judy Barnhill, Tennessee state president-elect, through Sen. Bob Corker’s office. “Special thanks” went out to Barnhill, who also organized the Tennessee dinner at a French restaurant, Petit Plats.
Many new “Sisterhood Connections” were made at the convention, while great fellowship was shared with old acquaintances.
