    ―The Delta Kappa Gamma Song‖

    International Society Founders

     The Founders of The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International were very human people. They carried heavy family responsibilities; they held offices in religious and

    professional groups; they supervised extracurricular activities and engaged in community

    projects. Although they risked their security and the loss of employment by working in the

    new Societyfrowned upon by masculine educatorsthey nevertheless gave generously of their time and energy as they crusaded in behalf of women teachers.

     Success did not just happen to the Founders. It was organized, preempted, captured by diligence, and concentrated common sense. Their ―sincerity gave wings to power.‖ Today, devout thanks go out to those Founders who were the ―doers.‖
