PTK Honor Society at SCC Helps to Feed Disadvantaged Veterans


This spring the Alpha Xi Tau Chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society of Surry Community College partnered with the James Hunter Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution to help feed disadvantaged and homeless veterans in our region.

The two organizations collected approximately 600 food items and $200 for the Coalition for Veterans and 85 food items for the Hands of God. Alpha Xi Tau collected over 150 of these food items.

Surry Community College’s PTK Chapter Advisor Dr. Kathleen D. Fowler says, “I’m really proud of the efforts made by our chapter to help members of our community. They not only identify local needs, but they make the effort to help fulfill those needs. It is through these efforts that we can make a real difference in the lives of real people. The officer team and chapter members are shining examples of leadership, service, scholarship, and fellowship, the four pillars on which Phi Theta Kappa is based. They have my respect.”

Phi Theta Kappa is the premier honor society recognizing the academic achievement of students at associate degree granting colleges and helping them to grow as scholars and leaders. The society is made up of more than 3.5 million members and nearly 1,300 chapters in 11 nations.
