FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
For the sixth consecutive year, West Virginia University at Parkersburg's Phi Theta Kappa chapter has been honored as the most outstanding chapter at the Virginia regional PTK convention held in Fredicksburg.
The chapter was named the most outstanding chapter in the 46-chapter Virginia region and received a Silver Pinnacle Chapter Award. In addition, the chapter received a special commendation of "5 Star Chapter" for the seventh year in recognition of its successful attainment of goals in PTK's Five Star Chapter Development Program. The program serves as a blueprint for developing a strong chapter and for earning local, regional, and international recognition. In the program, chapters do not compete against one another. Participation encourages excellence and recognizes progress in the attainment of goals set by the chapter.
During the convention, WVU Parkersburg students Heather Moore and Tera Williamson were inducted into the Virginia Region Hall of Honor. The chapter's first place essay contest winners included Kelli-Jo Ramirez, on fellowship; Maggie Allen, on leadership, and Trina Barber, on service. In addition, Carrie Metz received fourth place for her scholarship essay.
PTK is an international honor society for two-year institutions of higher education. There are 46 chapters in the Virginia region which includes Virginia and West Virginia. Faculty members Paul and Dottie Bibbee serve as co-advisors of the Parkersburg chapter.
