The Lee University chapter of Kappa Delta Pi held an induction ceremony for 30 new members, honoring Dr. Pam Browning, an education professor who recently passed away. 

KDP, an international honor society in education, conducts itself on the vision to “help committed educators be leaders in improving education for global citizenship.” Each year, Lee’s chapter of KDP hosts a ceremony to honor several educators who reflect the values and mission of the honor society. 

This year, KDP chose to acknowledge only Dr. Browning, honoring her life, memory, and service as an educator. Dr. Browning accumulated multiple local and national awards in her career that spanned 30 years, and her passion to help future educators has permanently impacted thousands of students.  

Dr. Browning joined Lee’s education department in 1989, where she later chaired for 19 years, training thousands of teachers who now span the globe. During her time at Lee, she received the Excellence in Teaching Award and the Excellence in Advising Award.

“She inspired me to not only be a teacher, but to be the kind of teacher that lives a life in service to her students and her community,” said Lily Cuzzort, chapter president and Lee alumna, who now teaches in Georgia.

During the ceremony, faculty, students, and KDP members shared personal reflections on Browning as a teacher, colleague, and friend. The event concluded with a benediction from Dr. Laura Anderson, faculty sponsor of the society and a professor of education at Lee. 

“Her legacy will continue on,” said Amanda Raby, foundation representative and an elementary education major at Lee. “Dr. Browning’s spirit, love, and values will live on through her wonderful family, and her teaching and educational practices will continue to live on through the educators she trained throughout the course of her career.”

Ms. Cuzzort presented the honor society inductees, who include Selena Abel, Elizabeth Bare, Judith Bell, Callie Brainerd, Ashley Capehart, Sydnee Cobb, Erin Cooper, Sydney Crumley, Rebecca Doss, Allyson Fadel, Kristi Farley, Megan Flora, Caroline Freiling, Julius Garrod, Jessica Gilbert, Madison Hodges, Abigail Lawrence, Heather Manno, Keri Mayfield, Sarah McIntosh, Brynnan Miller, Elise Petersheim, Elizabeth Queen, Micaela Ruiz-Moreno, Madeline Schultz, Emily Smith, Heather Snow, Ella Wheeler, Kaley Wingo, and Rachael Wood.
