We’re the Cover Story on Community College Week!

We’re thrilled to share this story about Phi Theta Kappa, the success of our members and our potential for growth that was featured this week on Community College Week. Some highlights:

“To glimpse at the numbers that define Phi Theta Kappa, the community college honor society, is to see an organization that is helping students thrive and prosper in a big way.”

“ ’We have great potential to grow,’ said George Boggs, the former president and CEO of the American Association of Community Colleges who recently was elected chair of PTK’s Board of Directors. ‘We want more students to be successful. That will be our focus going forward. If we could get half of the students who are eligible, we’d have a lot more students getting involved and being successful.’ ”
