Beta Theta Omicron’s College Project was recognized at The South San Francisco Volunteer Recognition on April 13. The Mayor, City Manager, Council members and other dignitaries thanked Skyline College Phi Theta Kappa members for their work with senior citizens. The Beta Theta Omicron College Project is Computer Literacy and Internet Competency for Seniors (CLICS). For the past year, Chapter members have been teaching senior citizens to use smartphones, tablets and personal computers. The central focus of Beta Theta Omicron’s Honors in Action 2015 project was to help seniors get health and wellness information and to help them keep in touch with family and friends. The Magnolia Senior Center Director told Chapter members “You are doing a fantastic job. It’s great work to dedicate yourselves to a service like this. The seniors appreciate your time and they enjoy speaking to younger people.” A senior wrote her first email to her Beta Theta Omicron teacher: “I can’t thank you enough.” Council members spoke with Chapter members about continuing and expanding their project.
