The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International promotes professional and personal growth of women educators and excellence in education.

One of the major projects of Beta Rho has been the designing and creation of seven banners which are works of art symbolizing the seven purposes of The Delta Kappa Gamma Society.

Beta Rho Chapter has actively supported Groundwork, a local shelter for battered women and children. We have donated books and a bookcase to the shelter’s reading resource room as a memorial to Beta Rho member Kathryn Nelsen, a former reading teacher in the Plainfield School District. Our members continually add titles and a variety of resource materials to this bookcase.

Our recruitment grant is awarded each year to deserving female college students of junior and senior status who are majoring in education and attend one of the local colleges. The total amount awarded in 10 years has been $6000.
