Don’t miss this chance to present your college president with honorary membership in Phi Theta Kappa for free!
Throughout the end of December we’re waiving the cost of honorary membership for the community college presidents who provide unwavering support of our chapters, their members and the Society as a whole.
“Our chapters are fortunate to have some incredible college presidents supporting them,” Phi Theta Kappa President and CEO Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner said. “An honorary membership in Phi Theta Kappa is a meaningful way to give them a well-deserved thank you, and we’re glad to offer this opportunity to our chapters for free.”
Honorary membership is a way to pay tribute to outstanding supporters of Phi Theta Kappa. Individuals selected for honorary membership should represent the ideals on which Phi Theta Kappa is based. They are afforded all rights and privileges of membership, with the exception of the right to vote or hold office. Honorary members do not pay membership fees.
Recently the Omega Eta Chapter at New River Community College recognized their retiring president, Dr. Jack Lewis, as an honorary member during their fall induction ceremony. View their event online.
“He is retiring after 16 years as president, and 42 years total at NRCC, and he has been a very strong proponent of and advocate for PTK on our campus,” said chapter advisor Ellen Oliver. “We felt it was important to recognize and honor that support publicly. “
The chapter invited all faculty and staff to attend the ceremony, to raise awareness about Phi Theta Kappa as well as recognize Dr. Lewis, and many did attend.
“Now they know more about us and the support we have received from our administration, and particularly Dr. Lewis,” Oliver said. “We are hopeful this will result in them helping us promote membership to invited students going forward.”
