CSE Students Inducted Into International Honors Society

Morristown, NJ (January 27, 2017) – Twenty-one CSE students were recognized by the International Honor Society for Education, Kappa Delta Pi, during ceremonies held in Dolan Performance Hall in late January. Induction into this prestigious honor society, founded in 1911, is for current and aspiring educators who demonstrate excellence in teaching and learning. A minimum 3.5 GPA is required, as well as recommendations from faculty and peers.

Kappa Delta Pi honorees are:

Two CSE education alumna, Lauren Geleailen, '16, and Carmen Bellino, '08, gave words of encouragement to the inductees.

Geleailen, a first-year English teacher in Hoboken Middle School, urged students to persevere.

"Remember, every student, no matter what age, gender, race or socioeconomic group, is facing the challenges of growing up ... Even when you feel you feel you are not making a difference, you are ... Educators have such amazing opportunities."

Bellino, principal in Hanover Township, shared a more veteran perspective.

"I wish you will meet many amazing people along the way. You will touch their lives, and they will give just as much, or maybe more, to you in return," she said in narrating the journey of one of her students named Ace. "This is challenging work. But, it's worth it. You can do it. You have to ... the Aces of the world need you."

CSE President Helen J. Streubert welcomed the educators and family members to the evening events which were coordinated by Kappa Delta Pi campus leaders, Alicia Mitchko and Kelly DiBenedetto, co-presidents, and Megan Weinholdt, secretary and treasurer. Ashley Restaino, chapter counselor, served as master of ceremonies.
