MCC Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society earns national recognition
The Mott Community College Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Honors Society, Alpha Omicron Iota chapter, was selected to receive the 2020 Distinguished Chapter Officer Team award. Thirty-one chapter officer teams will be honored during PTK Catalyst 2020, the organization’s annual convention near Dallas, Texas, April 2-4.
“We are very proud of our student leadership team,” said Dr. Brain Ivory, Director of the MCC Honors College. “Our students have shown tremendous commitment to teamwork and campus engagement, and this award is a well-deserved recognition of their efforts.”
Distinguished Chapter Officer Teams must be nominated by their chapter advisors through the Hallmark Awards application process, and are chosen based on the team’s demonstration of an exceptional atmosphere of teamwork, leadership abilities, promotion of Honors in Action, other engagement in the Society, and enthusiasm for the Hallmarks of the Society (Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Fellowship).

Its mission is to recognize academic achievement of college students and to provide opportunities for them to grow as scholars and leaders.
