COA’s Phi Theta Kappa recognized as a REACH chapter

College of The Albemarle’s (COA) Nu Nu Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa has been recognized as a REACH Chapter for the 2020-21 academic year. This recognition is part of the national REACH Rewards program that honors Phi Theta Kappa chapters excelling in membership development, specifically chapters who exceed 15 percent for their membership acceptance rate.

COA’s Nu Nu Chapter is one of over 1,000 chapters across the country being recognized in the REACH Rewards program. Special recognition in the form of four Phi Theta Kappa graduation stoles have been received at College of The Albemarle for members to wear in any upcoming graduation and induction celebrations.

The requirements to join Phi Theta Kappa were changed a couple of years ago by the International Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society to allow local chapters to invite students enrolled in shorter programs. Now, COA’s Nu Nu Chapter has 195 members including early college students, students enrolled in diploma programs, students enrolled in associate degree programs of study and graduates. The Nu Nu Chapter virtually participated in the Carolinas Regional Convention this month and will be virtually attending the national conference, PTK Catalyst 2021, in April.

The Nu Nu Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa at COA was chartered in April of 1964. Jordan Mitchell, president of Phi Theta Kappa at COA, shared, “Phi Theta Kappa is a wonderful honors society that has shaped my college experience in countless ways in just one year. The sense of camaraderie that accompanies accomplishing scholarship and service-based goals with my peers is unparalleled. I would proudly advocate the benefits of participation in the Nu Nu Chapter to anyone.”
