The concept that it takes a village to raise a child was embraced by the Alpha Gamma Chapter of the national sorority of Phi Delta Kappa, Inc.. The educational sorority recently hosted its Community Achievers Luncheon at the Doubletree Hotel
The goal was to honer individuals in the community that are instrumental in molding and developing the students in Duval County.
Community representatives and students were on hand to celebrate the honorees who were also entertained by local students.
The chapter honored eleven individuals that have gone above and beyond their job descriptions to educate and support students.
Recipients were honored for the hours spent engaging in teaching, guiding, and directing students to find their purpose and path towards success.
