JeNyia Rocker, a member of the Alpha Epsilon Nu Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) at Bishop State Community College, was among 30 Phi Theta Kappa members internationally who were honored with the 2014 Distinguished Chapter Member Award, presented recently by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.
Chapter Members were nominated by their chapters through the Hallmark Awards application process, and were chosen based on a student’s embodiment of the Hallmarks of the Society (Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Fellowship), said Tria Cohen, a Key Services Manager. They were selected by a panel of judges from more than 150 nominees worldwide, she said.
Recipients received commemorative medallions and were honored during the Hallmark Awards Gala held during Phi Theta Kappa’s annual convention in Orlando, Florida, last April.
Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, headquartered in Jackson, Mississippi, is the largest honor society in higher education with 1,285 chapters on college campuses in all 50 of the United States, plus Canada, Germany, the Republic of Palau, Peru, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, the British Virgin Islands, the United Arab Emirates and U.S. territorial possessions. Nearly 3 million students have been inducted since its founding in 1918, with approximately 131,000 students inducted annually.
