Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society Food Drive and regional awards

Thanks so much to all who donated to the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society Food Drive. We collected $60 for the LLCC Food Pantry, along with 423 items for the First Presbyterian Church Micro-Pantry. Your donations helped us win second place in our Illinois Region food drive competition. The second place prize of $50 will be split between the LLCC Food Pantry and the First Presbyterian Church Micro-Pantry. We are thrilled to be able to provided much-needed support for these two worthy causes. We appreciate the generosity of the LLCC community.

At the Illinois Regional Convention and Honors Institute Awards Ceremony on June 5, our chapter received two regional recognition awards:

  • Outstanding Officer Team – awarded to Julia Kienzler, Megan Jamison, Sara Waller and Hyler Pence for their “above-and-beyond” efforts to keep PTK members active and engaged in 2020, despite obstacles faced due to the pandemic
  • Outstanding Honors in Action Project – for our “Embracing Inclusivity” event held on Zoom on November 23, 2020, to raise awareness of issued faced by LGBTQ youth and raise money for the Phoenix Center
