KILLEEN, Texas (Sept. 13, 2022) – This week, City of Killeen Mayor Debbie Nash-King was awarded the Texas Women of Distinction honor from District XII of the Alpha Delta Kappa Honorary Sorority for Women Educators.
“She is truly such an outstanding role model for all people, but particularly women,” Epsilon Theta charter member, Carolyn Dugger said. “We wanted to recognize her for her service to the community as a leader and as a veteran in this city.”
There are 15 districts of Alpha Delta Kappa in Texas, and they nominate a Women of Distinction every two years. Nash-King was nominated in March 2023 by District XII, which includes Killeen, Copperas Cove, Temple, Waco and Hillsboro. Nash-King received the majority vote from all five chapters for her nomination.
The organization held their state conference this summer. The Epsilon Theta chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa includes Killeen and has nearly 40 members. There are about 150 members in District XII.
They are an organization that performs community service and awards educational scholarships throughout the area. They also empower women educators to advance inclusion, educational excellence, altruism and world understanding.
“I feel honored to be considered for this prestigious award,” Mayor Nash-King said. “I aim to continue to be a role model for women throughout Central Texas.”
