SC4 hosts regional honor society convention
The St. Clair County Community College (SC4) Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society hosted the Michigan Regional Convention on April 20-22 at the College. Over 150 members, advisors, alumni and guests attended from 22 community colleges in Michigan. They heard speakers and attended workshops related to the Society’s 2001-02 Honors Study Topic (“Customs, Traditions and Celebrations: The Human Drive for Community”) and the Society’s annual Service Theme, “America’s Promise: The Alliance for Youth.” America’s Promise is the organization to help children founded by Secretary of State, Colin Powell. In addition to scholastic endeavors, the members attending the Convention enjoyed numerous opportunities for fellowship, particularly during the Hallmark Awards Gala Celebration which celebrated the 100th anniversary of the community college, the Michigan Region’s 12th anniversary, and the SC4 chapter’s 40th anniversary.
Members of the SC4 Board of Trustees were in attendance as well as college president Dr. Christa Adams who received the prestigious Award of Distinction from the Michigan Region. Dr. Adams was saluted for her distinguished service to the Lambda Mu chapter, and for her service to the Regional Phi Theta Kappa as a whole.
Lambda Mu chapter itself received numerous awards. It was recognized for the seventh straight year as a Continuing Excellence Chapter and for its 11th consecutive year as a Five Star Chapter, the top rank. In addition, the chapter won a Hallmark Award in the Scholarship category, was first runner-up in the Fellowship and Leadership Hallmarks and was second runner-up in the Service Hallmark.
Individual members also received awards. Chapter President Linda Smith of Yale received a Distinguished President Award; Vice President of Fellowship Andrea Easterby of Port Huron was recognized with a Distinguished Officer Award; and member Sherrie Artman of Jeddo won a Distinguished Member Award. The chapter was recognized with both a Michigan Regional and an International Award for hosting the Region’s 12th Annual Convention. Marsha Kipp of Lexington was awarded a Michigan Region Award for her services to the Region and the Chapter. Linda Smith won the Mike Sherman Award, given to the officer candidate who best exemplifies the four hallmarks of Phi Theta Kappa (Fellowship, Service, Leadership, Scholarship) and was also elected to be the Michigan Region’s Secretary-Treasurer. As a result of its achievements in the 2000-01 year, the SC4 chapter received two scholarships to the Society’s Annual Honors Institute in Atlanta, Georgia.
Just three weeks prior at the Society’s International Convention in Denver, Colorado, the chapter won both an international Fellowship and Scholarship Hallmark award, which meant the chapter was in the top ten of the 440 competing chapters in those categories. The chapter also received a top 25 recognition in the Service Hallmark. The chapter’s V-P of Fellowship Andrea Easterby, who was also the Michigan Regional Secretary-Treasurer, was awarded one of ten Distinguished Regional Officer Awards. This performance followed a year (1999-2000) in which the SC4 chapter was named the Society’s Most Distinguished Chapter in the nation and received a Service Hallmark Award.
