For the second year in a row, a West Virginia University at Parkersburg honorary has earned the most outstanding chapter award for its region.
The Sigma Omega chapter of Phi Theta Kappa earned the title of most outstanding in competition with 46 other eligible institutions in PTK’s Virginia regionals at the annual convention held near Washington, D.C.
To achieve the honor, PTK members competed in a number of separate competitions with a range of categories, noted Paul Bibbee, WVU Parkersburg’s PTK co-advisor.
Sigma Omega received a first place designation in three of PTK’s Hallmark Awards’ essay competitions and third place in a fourth category. The essays are on scholarship, leadership, service and fellowship.
"We are fortunate to have such expressive PTK members to bring the essays to life," Bibbee noted.
In the yearbook competition, the Parkersburg chapter received first honors and took third place in the newsletter competition.
Several chapter members also received individual honors during awards ceremonies held during the convention. WVU Parkersburg PTK members Amanda Ray, Jonathan Riddle and Alicia Richmond were inducted into the Hall of Honor for their service to the chapter and region.
PTK is a national honorary society for students at two-year institutions. The honorary’s objectives are the promotion of scholarship and the development of citizenship, leadership and character among college students.
