SANFORD - Representatives of Beta Sigma Phi, the Central Carolina Community College chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, attended the PTK Carolinas Regional Convention in Myrtle Beach, S.C., the weekend of March 9-11
Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education. In 1929, the American Association of Community Colleges recognized PTK as the official honor society for two-year colleges. The CCCC chapter sets a higher standard for membership eligibility than the national organization: a 3.7 grade point average rather than the 3.5 GPA that national requires.
Beta Sigma Phi took home a number of awards, including:
In addition to the awards received, CCCC's first student to hold a regional office in PTK, Teresa Echeverria, completed her term as Regional Vice President from North Carolina and was recognized for her hard work and dedication.
Representatives from Beta Sigma Phi will attend PTK's annual convention in Kansas City, Mo., in late April.
