Dr. Lisa Allen, dean of Campbellsville University's School of Education, and Dr. Elisha Lawrence, sponsor of Delta Pi and associate professor of education, led the ceremony.
Lawrence said, "The initiation of new members are honored in the initiation ceremony to recognize their achievements and also their responsibilities that come with those achievements."
"This shows momentous achievement for myself and my family because by the grace of God I have come this far in life. If you let God into your life, he can do great things and I sure do see it every day," Winkler, a senior, said.
