Karen DeLawter is Kappa Delta Pi’s regional chapter coordinator (RCC) for the West region and had the honor of working with Dr. Robin Capt as the RCC for her university for many years.
It is with great sadness that Kappa Delta Pi learned about the recent untimely death of member, counselor, mentor, professor, colleague, volunteer, and friend Dr. Robin Capt.
For more than five years, I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Capt as she served Kappa Delta Pi in the role of chapter counselor. Through her leadership of the Iota Theta Chapter at West Texas A&M University, she inspired multiple students and educators through mentoring many and offering quality programming and service projects that continue to make a huge impact on campus and in the community. Two of the most notable were the yearly Teacher Expo and the much anticipated Chili Cook-off.
Dr. Capt most recently presented an amazing workshop at our CONVO three weeks ago in Dallas, on the topic of “Underprepared College Students: Teaching Challenges and Strategic Responses.” She was also recognized as a five-year counselor at the event.
The college will conduct its memorial service on Thursday, Nov. 21, at 11:45 at the university’s Hill Chapel.
We feel this an appropriate time to remind members about the webinar offered Sept. 11 by Dr. David J. Schonfeld on Supporting the Grieving Student. Members can access this webinar for free in the Resource Catalog.
The Foundation is accepting contributions for chapter grant honoring Robin: The Iota Theta Chapter Grant. The yearly grant will be given to a member of the Iota Theta Chapter.
Dr. Capt made a difference for so many educators by her passion and dedication to the profession. She will surely be missed.
