Members of the National Sorority of Phi Delta Kappa, Inc-Beta Lambda, embraced the holiday spirit on Dec. 4 by distributing gifts to teachers and students in Winston-Salem.  

Phi Delta Kappa, a professional organization of teachers, is dedicated to promoting the academic achievement of young people across the globe. The organization’s first stop was to the Rupert Bell Neighborhood Recreation Center. The goal was to distribute books to students at the recreation center’s tutoring site. Cathy Talbert, an administrative assistant for the Winston-Salem Urban League, warmly welcomed the members and helped to facilitate the matching of book to reader. 

The next stop was to Ashley Elementary, where members presented Principal Joanell Gatling with teacher appreciation gifts for the staff. Principal Gatling expressed gratitude at the outpouring of support for the faculty at Ashley Elementary, noting that the gifts would be well received. 

Finally, the members of Phi Delta Kappa, stopped by Parkland High School with more gifts for the teachers there. Parkland Assistant Principal Roshanda McCrimmon thanked the members for their spirit of generosity.

The members of Phi Delta Kappa, along with President Donna Mickens, hope to continue spreading gifts of literacy and appreciation well into the new year.
