From the Desk of (RCC)
Welcome to the home stretch! As you near finals, graduation, and summer, we hope that you take some time to celebrate all that your chapter has accomplished this year. Officers, if you would like your counselor to receive recognition for all that they do for you, we have created the Honor Your Counselor program, so that both they and all of KDP knows what they mean to you!
Chapter Highlight
Chapter Highlight – Florida International University
The Omicron Theta Chapter at Florida International University has become known for their fun-loving members. From bowling fundraisers to ice cream socials, these future teachers have a great time building their networks. The cornerstone of each year is a themed initiation, including motifs from Monsters University and Ringling Brothers. Gain some inspiration from their Instagram account!

Wear Cords with Pride
Graduation is right around the corner! Be sure to order graduation merchandise soon so that it arrives in time for your graduating chapter members. Wearing the honor cords and stole is a privilege for our members and a way to make sure you are showing your KDP pride. Order today!
What You Don’t Know Could Hurt Your Students
How “allergy-aware” are you? Did you know that up to 6% of students could have food allergies? Join us for the KDP Webinar on Thursday, April 13 to learn more about “Becoming a Food Allergy-Aware School Community.”
Initiation Time
Spring initiations are in full swing at many chapters! As you plan for this event, be sure to visit the Chapter Initiation page to find instructions on the online initiation process as well as ways to make this a meaningful experience for new members. Be sure to post pictures on your chapter’s social media to celebrate the event and welcome your new members into KDP!
Counselor Form
Counselor Transitions
As another year draws to a close, some chapters are bidding their counselors a fond farewell. If your chapter is transitioning counselors, please let us know by reaching out to your Regional Chapter Coordinator with a New Counselor Form. We also encourage chapter members to recognize their outgoing counselor for his or her service. Counselors – thank you for volunteering your time to KDP and to your students!
