Retired Professor Inducted into Honorary Society

May 17, 2013

ATHENS, Alabama – Athens State University Professor Emeritus Dr. Joe Brasher has been elected into the honorary Eleanor Roosevelt Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi. The Eleanor Roosevelt Chapter was established to recognize men and women who have made significant contributions of service to the Society and exemplified its ideals and excellence in education.

“Election into the Eleanor Roosevelt Chapter is a lifetime award and limited to 100 living members,” states Executive Director Faye Snodgress in her letter congratulating Brasher. “Like the Laureate nomination and selection process, current Chapter members will assist in the selection of new members of the Eleanor Roosevelt Chapter every biennium.”

Kappa Delta Pi International Honor Society in Education, founded by Dr. William Bagley in 1911 at the University of Illinois, was established to foster excellence in education and promote fellowship among those dedicated to teaching. Pioneering from its beginning by including women as well as men, Kappa Delta Pi grew from a local chapter to the international organization it is today, comprising 600 chapters and more than 40,000 members.

Brasher is invited to attend the 49th Biennial Convocation in October in Dallas, Texas. During that Convocation he will be formally inducted into the Eleanor Roosevelt Chapter.

Brasher retired from Athens State in 2011 after serving Athens State University for 26 years in the capacity of Professor of Education in the College of Education.
