Marian University student Jordan Ahmay received the Distinguished Chapter Officer Award for her work as president of the university’s chapter of Kappa Delta Pi (KDP), an international honor society in education.
The award is part of the 2014 Awards of Education Excellence, which honors individuals and chapters for their significant contributions to the society and the education world. This is the first year the awards are being given on an annual basis; historically, awards have been granted biennially.
Throughout her year as president, Ahmay led Marian University’s team of officers and helped Marian University earn the chapter’s fifth consecutive Achieving Excellence Award.
“Jordan has a keen awareness of how important education is in the broader scheme of life and she works tirelessly to help others accomplish their goals,” said Susie Beesley, Ph.D., advisor for KDP and chair of the Teacher Education Committee at Marian University.
Ahmay has also been named an Outstanding Future Educator by the Indiana Association of Colleges of Teacher Education.
