“A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove … but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.” 
– Forest E. Witcraft

The DKG Educational Foundation

The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International (DKG) and The Educational Foundation (EF) lost a long-time leader 
whose gentle and compassionate spirit was evident in every thing she did for educators and for education.

Alice Lacoss Carrier died on January 26, 2017 after a brief illness. Friends in Delta Kappa Gamma learned she had 
returned to the hospital just a day or two before she was to join a phone conference planning session with International 
President Carolyn Pittman and Past International President Dr. Beverly Helms.

In addition to being an elementary teacher in Guilford and Brattleboro, Vermont, Alice shared her talents and her 
leadership in her church and in her community.  Because of her commitment to education she served tirelessly in 
chapter, state, and international positions of The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International (DKG) including two 
years as a Trustee on the Educational Foundation from 2010 to 2012.

Alice traveled throughout the United States and northern Europe in support of teachers and education around the 
world. In 2012, she was honored to receive the International Achievement Award, the highest award given by DKG, 
to recognize her distinguished record of service to the organization.

Friends and members of DKG can share memories and leave condolences with Alice’s family at
