CENTENNIAL REFLECTIONS

Here is a message from Phi Theta Kappa's CEO:

CENTENNIAL REFLECTIONS

unnamed.jpg

As we approach the milestone of our centennial celebration, I can’t help but reflect on Phi Theta Kappa’s past and look toward its (very bright) future.

The original purpose statement of Phi Theta Kappa focused on the organization’s role within what were known at the time as “Accredited Junior Colleges.” However, throughout the 1960s, many colleges began changing their names from “junior“ to “community” colleges, reflecting a mission expansion that was more inclusive of career and technical education programs that would directly impact local and national employment needs.

Phi Theta Kappa responded by revising its own language to be more inclusive of the expanding mission of its chapter institutions. In 1965, we revised the language in our constitution and mission statement to reflect our commitment to “two-year college students” — all the while keeping all eyes on academic achievement, leadership, service, and fellowship.

Now, we're updating our language again, to "college" instead of "community college." Click here to keep reading and learn why.

We hope you will continue to support us as we grow.

Sincerely,

Welcome to our new website!

Hello Officers, Members, Prospective Students, and Faculty;

This year is going to be GREAT!

We have a fantastic team to work with, and a very kind-hearted adviser, Jason File. It is our goal this year to expand the Phi Theta Kappa name on campus, through service, and create an environment of love and support on Sierra College's campus.

As our first live year since the club went without an adviser for several years, we intend on taking on this opportunity as boldly as possible. 

After Brittany and I traveled to Chicago, IL for the Honors Institute in June, we became much more aware of all the opportunities PTK has to offer.

Of course, there are spectacular scholarships available for all National Members in the Fall semester, but the projects we can work on as a whole to become a competitive, nationally ranked chapter. This consists of the Honors in Action Project, College Project, and the Five-Star Competitive Edge (more information can be found on another page).

Thank you for your intentions to further your service and the community at Sierra College. I hope I get to you this year!

 

Kylene Landenberger

President
