Skyline College’s Omicron Theta Beta Chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society achieved the distinction of Five Star Status for 2015. This is the 15th consecutive time since the chapter was chartered in November 1999 that the chapter has earned the highest status awarded by Phi Theta Kappa.
To achieve the five-star level, members must do scholarly research and develop and implement a service project on the Honors Study Topic. Additionally, they must develop and implement a College Project, specifically for the benefit of the College. At the Nevada/California Regional Convention this past weekend, Beta Theta Omicron’s Honors in Action Project and College Project received the Regional awards in these categories. The awards are the result of competitive essays documenting the chapter’s 2015 projects.
The Chapter yearbook earned the Regional Yearbook Award. We are grateful to our Chapter Historian and yearbook editor, Pauline Maccay, for her leadership. And the Officer Team earned the Distinguished Regional Chapter Officer Team Award.
Regional individual awards were awarded to
Akayi Thein: Art Award
Donway Sy: Regional Scholar, second place.
Please congratulate chapter members and officers for their work and accomplishments.
