The Alpha Epsilon Kappa chapter of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society invites interested LLCC employees to attend our Fall Induction Ceremony On Tuesday, Nov. 12, 5-6 p.m. in the Trutter Center. This is a great event where new members are formally recognized in a ceremony conducted in part by the student leaders of our chapter:
- Meredith Niermann, president
- Hyler Pence, vice president of scholarship
- Hannah Roberts, vice president of service
- Maria Moore, secretary
- Evan Yates, treasurer
- Cheyenne Kesselring, public relations officer
In the past, due to limited seating availability in the Robert H. Stephens Room, we have restricted the audience to just students’ families. Recently we realized that the ceremony has outgrown that space, so we changed locations and now have plenty of seating for LLCC employees to join us as well. Come and see our students receive well-deserved recognition! The brief ceremony is followed by a reception with refreshments. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to email@example.com.
