GBC PTK Chapter Recognized Nationally

PTK Reach Recognition graphic.The GBC PTK chapter, Beta Beta Epsilon, was recently recognized nationally, receiving the 2022 REACH Chapter recognition. Way to go PTK! Here is the letter sent to GBC President Joyce Helens:

Dear Dr. Joyce Helens,

Phi Theta Kappa’s REACH Rewards program recognizes and rewards Phi Theta Kappa chapters that excel in membership development. We created this program because we believe strongly in the mission of Phi Theta Kappa and want as many students as possible to receive the benefits of membership — including scholarships and increased opportunities for engagement with peers and faculty on campus, which lead to higher rates of completion.

I am happy to announce that your Phi Theta Kappa chapter at Great Basin College – Elko Campus has been named a 2022 REACH Chapter and will receive special recognition in the form of 5 Phi Theta Kappa graduation stoles that will be sent directly to your chapter’s advisor. These stoles can be distributed to chapter officers or members to be worn during graduation and to keep in celebration of their college completion milestone. Read the full announcement.

Congratulations and thank you for your support in furthering Phi Theta Kappa’s mission of providing recognition and opportunity to students on your campus. The dedication of both you and your chapter advisors to enhancing the college experience and the lives of students amid the numerous challenges 2021 presented is truly appreciated and more important than ever before.

Sincerely,
Lynn Tincher-Ladner, Ph.D
President and CEO
