Biographical / Historical

Notable chapter activities include scholarships for aspiring educators, support for beginning teachers, professional development opportunities for its members, and literacy advocacy. Strong membership growth in its earliest decades prompted it to sponsor the Alpha Pi Chapter in 1959 for members from Orange and Chatham Counties, and the Beta Iota and Beta Kappa Chapters in 1967 for members from Durham and Person Counties. A chapter Coordinating Council unites the work and social activities of all four chapters.
