Retired Waynesboro teachers present donation to Boys and Girls Club

WAYNESBORO — Alpha Delta Kappa has donated collected books and games for use at the planned new teen center at the Boys and Girls Club’s Waynesboro unit, according to a news release.

Retired Waynesboro teachers Lily Walters and Sandra Cooper, both members of Alpha Delta Kappa, delivered the books and games on Tuesday.

“Alpha Delta Kappa’s continued commitment to providing educational resources to local youth truly shows that teachers teach in and out of the classroom,” said Debra Freeman-Belle, executive director of the Boys and Girls Club, in the press release. “These retired Waynesboro educators have spent their careers serving our children and we are grateful to them for continuing to invest in this way while enjoying their retirement.”

Alpha Delta Kappa is an international honorary service sorority, founded for educators in the 1970s. The donation was in honor of Alpha Delta Kappa Month. The purpose of Alpha Delta Kappa, according to the release, is to promote high standards in education, thereby enhancing the status and advancement of the teaching profession.
