Phi Theta Kappa receives award

The Odessa College chapter of Phi Theta Kappa recently was awarded the Journey Challenge Award in recognition of an increase in its membership. Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society for two-year colleges, presents the annual award to member chapters that meet or exceed their stated goal of a 20 percent increase in new inductees.

OC's Eta Tau chapter, whose charter emphasizes scholarship, leadership, service and fellowship, admitted 111 new members, celebrating a 32 percent increase over the previous year's total. The improved membership level is part of the chapter's efforts to expand its student leadership opportunities and community service, according to faculty advisor and OC reading instructor Tammy Patni.

Patni also mentioned other improvements in the student organization such as the development of an email system. The OC honor society also has its own Web site, one of the first in Texas, which was created by a student member.

For more information about OC's chapter of Phi Theta Kappa and its activities, call 335-6696.
