ICCS Music Teacher Receives Award

Immaculate Conception Cathedral School music teacher Linzie Mullins received a Lucile Cornetet Individual Award for professional development from The Delta Kappa Gamma Educational Foundation. Mullins, who teaches preschool through eighth grade Orff Method music at ICCS, will use the award to attend the Orff Level 3 Certification at the University of Memphis.

Lynna Gene Cook, chair of the Educational Foundation Board of Trustees, stated that the Foundation awards approximately $50,000 annually to outstanding educators to enable them to attend professional activities in their respective fields. A bequest to the Delta Kappa Gamma Society International from the Lucile Cornetet estate was the basis for establishing the Lucile Cornetet Professional Development Fund in 2005. Miss Cornetet, a long-time educator and Society member in Ohio, died in 2001. The Educational Foundation supports and encourages intercultural understanding and educational excellence. Established in 1964, the Foundation is a non-profit organization located in the Delta Kappa Gamma Society International Headquarters in Austin, Texas. The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International, established in 1929, is an honor organization for women educators in 18 countries.
