STARTING TO PLAN OUR PTK COLLEGE PROJECT!
Did you know that to become a FOUR STAR chapter we need to plan and implement a college project? What is a college project you ask?
The college project can be anything that benefits the college, aligns with the college mission statement and is approved by the college administration. Working on a college project helps our chapter to develop and strengthen a supportive working relationship with the college administration.
Stay tuned for more information and what YOU can do to participate! #IAMPTK
PTK Executive Board members met on August 24, 2020 with HVCC President Dr. Ramsammy and Assistant VP of Academic Affairs, Ronalyn Wilson.
VOLUNTEERING AT THE REGIONAL FOODBANK
Members of the HVCC Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society volunteered at the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern NY in Latham, NY on August 15, 2020. The Food Bank collects large donations of food from various locations throughout New York state. With an ever-increasing demand for food, the Food Bank has even started hosting pop-up stations throughout the capital region. Volunteers packed boxes of fresh fruits and vegetables to be distributed to local charities, food pantries and homeless shelters. Any slightly bruised food was not discarded, rather it was collected in a separate bin to be distributed to local farms for animal consumption.
The PTK volunteers took this opportunity to help the community, one of the core values of Phi Theta Kappa. With its purpose of developing leadership and service, Phi Theta Kappa promotes academic excellence and fellowship for all its members. This is why members are proud to say #IAMPTK.
Over three consecutive weeks this summer, PTK members participated in a different healthy challenge and documented their activities on Instagram. They also received support from friends & family to sponsor them and help raise money for Joseph’s House in Troy.
To celebrate the completion of this exceptional challenge, executive board members participate in a fun frisbee-challenge. Check out the video made by Lauren Murtagh, Vice President of Fellowship & Service!
Here are the awesome winners for each challenge:
