Eastern Connecticut State University's Education Department inducted 34 students into Kappa Delta Pi, the international honor society for education, on Dec. 5, 2020.
Among the inductees was Sydney Collentine of New Fairfield, a senior majoring in Elementary Education and Communication.
Founded in 1911 at the University of Illinois, what first began as club of 22 members has grown into an international society with more than 1.2 million members. Eastern's chapter, Epsilon Nu, was founded in 1943. To be selected for membership, students must exhibit a promising future in the field of education, and promote high personal standards and scholarship ideals.
