Thirty Named Phi Theta Kappa Distinguished Advisors

Jackson, MS – Thirty Phi Theta Kappa advisors will be honored with the Distinguished Advisor Award, presented by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society during NerdNation 2015, the annual convention, in San Antonio, Texas, April 16-18. Recipients will receive commemorative medallions and be honored during the Association of Chapter Advisors Luncheon and the Second General Session.

The Distinguished Advisor Award recognizes advisors who have served at least four years and have made significant contributions to the growth of the individual chapter members, served as the chapter’s advocate on campus, and encouraged the chapter to be involved on the local, regional, and/or international level of the organization. Advisors were nominated by their chapters through the Hallmark Awards application process. They were selected by a panel of judges from over 55 nominees worldwide.
