Alpha Delta Kappa is an international honorary organization of women educators dedicated to educational excellence, altruism and world understanding. The overarching purpose of the organization is to build a fraternal fellowship among women in the field of education which will add to their effectiveness in the promotion of excellence in education, to promote high standards of education and thereby strengthen the status and advancement of the education profession, to promote educational and charitable projects and activities, to sponsor scholarships, to further and maintain worthy standards in the field of education and to cooperate with worthy community programs relating to education and charities. More than 33,000 women educators around the world have discovered the many opportunities provided by membership in Alpha Delta Kappa opportunities for recognition of their commitment to educational excellence, for personal and professional growth and for collectively channeling their energies toward the good of their schools, communities, the teaching profession and the world.

Said Mayor Porter, “Receiving an education is a universal right obliging states to promote excellence in educators and to champion their work. Women, both at home and abroad, have offered their energy, talent and leadership in support of this right as professional educators. These honorees here today represent a long line of women who have built fraternal fellowship among those in the field of education by promoting high standards that contribute to world understanding, good will and peace.”

Thereafter, Mayor Porter proclaimed the month of October in the year 2014 to be “Alpha Delta Kappa Month” in the City of Homestead.
