Carl Sandburg College’s Chi Kappa chapter of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society recently was presented with a Distinguished College Project Award during PTK’s annual international convention.

The award honors chapters for exemplary work on their College Project, which is meant to establish a stronger relationship between the chapter and the college’s administration in addition to supporting the college’s mission. Sandburg’s project saw students in its chapter contribute to the weekly Galesburg Register-Mail column series celebrating the College’s 50th anniversary.

Sandburg’s chapter was one of 50 selected for the honor out of nearly 600 that submitted College Projects for competition. Sandburg also was the only chapter from Illinois to receive the award.

Phi Theta Kappa includes more than 1,300 two-year colleges across the United States, Canada and abroad and is committed to recognizing outstanding scholarship. Membership not only enhances a student’s resume but also provides them with special transfer scholarship opportunities at many four-year colleges and universities.
