Press Release – Beth Walker, director of advising and testing services at Gillette College, recently received two special awards for her work as the Phi Theta Kappa chapter advisor. She received both the Distinguished Chapter Advisor Award and the Horizon Award at the PTK Colorado/Wyoming Regional Convention.
According to the Phi Theta Kappa website, award-winning advisors make significant contributions to the growth of individual student members, serve as the chapter’s advocate on campus, and encourage the chapter to be involved on the local regional and/or international levels of the organization.
“Under Beth’s leadership, our Gillette College PTK chapter has won several awards and has consistently been rated as a five-star chapter,” said Dr. Mark Englert, vice president and CEO of Gillette College. “Beth represents Gillette College well throughout our state and region and contributes to the success of our students.”
Advisors must serve at least four years as chapter advisor to be eligible for the Distinguished Chapter Advisor award. Walker also received the Horizon Award for her participation as part of the Colorado/Wyoming Regional Advisory Team and Regional Alumni Association.
PTK is the premier honor society recognizing the academic achievement of community college students and helping them to grow as scholars and leaders. The society has more than 3 million members and nearly 1,300 chapters in nine nations.
