New members include:
Each member of the organization must be a junior or senior; hold a GPA of at least 3.0; demonstrate a commitment to a career in education; and maintain a professional attitude that assures steady growth in the profession.
KDP offers members the opportunity to network with other pre-service teachers. Members also participate in service to the community.
During the Christmas season, KDP members raised funds to purchase toys and clothing for two children. The group held a bake sale in April to raise funds for a to-be-determined service project.
KDP was established to foster excellence in education and promote fellowship among those dedicated to teaching. The founders chose the name from the Greek words to represent knowledge, duty and power. Pioneering from its beginning by including women as well as men, KDP grew from a local chapter to the international organization it is today, comprising 600 chapters and more than 40,000 members.
