Alpha Upsilon, an area chapter of the Alpha Delta Kappa international honorary sorority for women educators, were involved in activities during October celebrating Alpha Delta Kappa month. Members of Alpha Upsilon chapter are from Chatfield, Dover-Eyota, St. Charles and Fillmore Central.

The Alpha Delta Kappa organization consists of professional women educators actively engaged in teaching, administration, or some specialized field of the teaching profession, in addition to retired educators. Alpha Delta Kappa members promote high standards in education, and also sponsor altruistic projects in and outside of their communities.

Some of the projects the Alpha Upsilon members have been involved in include preparing and serving meals at the Dorothy Day House, supporting the local post prom parties, providing needed clothing for disabled veterans, purchasing books and school supplies for communities hit by disaster, and giving a $500 scholarship every two years to a local student majoring in education.

Alpha Delta Kapp is known for contributing to world understanding, goodwill, and peace through an international fellowship of women educators united in the ideals of education.
