Students present at international convention

CERRO COSO COMMUNITY COLLEGE — Seven CCCC Phi Theta Kappa students presented a 30-minute educational forum during the International PTK Catalyst 2017 Convention in Nashville, Tenn., in April.

Jenna Daugherty, Alejandro Tellez, Kayla Voigt, Gloria Middleton, Loraine Coggins, Theodore Valdez, and Caitlin Peterson presented “Conquering Cancer One Relay at a Time: American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life event is so much more than a fundraising event. Get practical tips and inspiration from a successful chapter” in a fast, focused, and engaging format.

The College relay team, Coyotes for a Cure, helped the Cerro Coso PTK Chapter Beta Kappa Chi rank in the top ten PTK chapters participating in the Relay for Life.

In the 10 rounds of forums offered, Catalyst attendees were given nearly 200 Educational Forums from which to choose.

Catalyst: an agent that provokes or speeds significant change or action. Participants witnessed the change and action the Phi Theta Kappa experience has spurred in its members and advisors.

The annual convention was truly a transformative experience that will be a catalyst for both the Beta Kappa Chi Chapter and its students. PTK - stand out above the rest.
