Diane L. Robinson was recently honored during the 2010 International Convention of The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International that was held recently in Spokane, Wash. She was recognized as one of 187 “Women of Vision and Action” in the society of more than 107,000 key women educators in 17 countries.

Robinson, whose vision is of an effective professional organization, works tirelessly to fulfill that vision by mentoring women in leadership roles in order to develop a cadre of emerging leaders. Her hope is that they will create positive change within their schools and communities.

In addition to this high international honor and her election as the northeast region representative on the International Nominations Committee (2010-2014), Robinson also is the first recipient of The Evelyn L. Bull Distinguished Leadership Award, a Delta Chapter award, which was presented to her by Marion E. Hines at the spring 2010 Nu State Convention of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International. Hines is a member of the faculty at Howard University, past Delta Chapter president and immediate past president of Nu State, District of Columbia.

The Evelyn L. Bull Distinguished Leadership Award is named in honor of Evelyn L. Bull, retired supervisor of instruction in the District of Columbia Public Schools, who provided distinguished leadership during her professional career.
Robinson shares a mutual appreciation, affection and friendship with a large number of key women educators at all levels of the society and has provided consistent and effective leadership in furthering the mission and purposes of the society as an officer and state leadership development chairman.

Bull celebrated her 100th birthday in 2009 and the award was instituted to honor her 60-plus years of inspiring leaders.
