Faulkner State Community College’s Pi Psi Chapter ranks among the best chapters internationally according to the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society. At the 95th annual convention, which was held April 4-7 in San Jose, California, the Pi Psi Chapter received awards for Distinguished College Administrator (Dean of Instruction Emily Martin), Continued Excellence Advisor (Business Department Chair Charles Lake) and Distinguished College Project (Breast Cancer Awareness).
Pi Psi was one of 30 chapters internationally to receive the Distinguished College Project Award at the International Convention.
The members of the Pi Psi Chapter work tirelessly throughout the year creating and continuing service projects such as food drives, book drives and blood drives. The Breast Cancer Awareness program is one of their top service projects as they recruit the services of Natural Science Department Chair Ed Perry and Natural Science Instructor Kevin Watson. The program is open to the student body and the community and takes place each October.
The student officers who attended this year’s international convention were Katie Glover (President), Courtney Gilbert (Vice-President of Fellowship), Brittany Hale (Vice-President of Communications) and Larry Willis (Member).
Dean of Federal Programs and PTK Pi Psi Chapter Co-Advisor Lena Dexter says experiences like this are nothing short of inspiring to our students.
“Conventions provide the members an opportunity to interact and network with other members outside of their college. It also allows members to learn more about the organization and to learn from keynote speakers, such as Geoff Colvin (editor and columnist of Fortune Magazine), who was one of this year’s speakers,” Dexter said. ”Where else can a student go and hear speakers of this caliber?”
Each year, members of the Pi Psi Chapter attend a regional conference and the annual international convention. In March, the Pi Psi Chapter received regional acknowledgement by receiving the Distinguished Member Award (Lisa Slaff), Continued Excellence Award for Advisors (Charles Lake, Co-Advisor), College Project Award, and the chapter received a Five-Star Chapter Award.
