The Gamma Gamma Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International on Feb. 3 awarded $100 to Jennifer Norwood, a teacher new to the Zachary school district.

Norwood teaches special education at Zachary Career and Technical Center but previously taught in East Baton Rouge Parish schools.

Delta Kappa Gamma, a professional honorary society of women educators worldwide, promotes professional and personal growth in education, according to Ginger Parker, Gamma Gamma member and retired Zachary Elementary teacher.

Each chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma includes both working and retired teachers, Parker said.

“Our chapter rewards one new teacher from a drawing of names of all the teachers new to our school district each year,” Parker said.
