LAKEWOOD, CO – The Red Rocks Community College (RRCC) chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, Alpha Kappa Sigma, returned from their annual international convention with a record number of awards.

 

PTK chapter advisor Carolyn Mattern, officers Savina Cancino, Rebecca Winters, and Cody Oldham, and regional officer Rita Erickson attended the conference, which took place this year in Orlando, FL.  Among their nine awards, RRCC’s Alpha Kappa Sigma earned 7th place for Distinguished Chapter, which is selected from over 1,300 chapters in the world.

 

“I’m so proud of this team,” said Carolyn Mattern, Advisor for RRCC’s chapter.  “These achievements demonstrate the dedication and leadership of our students, who not only excel in academics, but are committed to serving our community.”

 

The chapter earned the following awards:

  • Distinguished Honors in Action Project
  • Distinguished Honors in Action Theme Award – “Culture of Competition”
  • Continued Excellence Advisor – Carolyn Mattern
  • Distinguished Officer Team – Savina Cancino, Rebecca Winters and Cody Oldham
  • Distinguished Officer – Savina Cancino
  • Distinguished College Project
  • Distinguished Chapter
  • Top 100 Chapters list
  • 7th Finalist for Distinguished Chapter

 

The chapter won the Distinguished Honors in Action award for their research project, which focused on the Culture of Competition.  They studied the impact of competition among non-profit agencies and implemented a donation drive for three agencies as part of the project.

 

The team’s awarding-winning “Distinguished College Project” is the Fox Star Challenge volunteer contest. Beginning last fall, students were encouraged to volunteer—on campus or within the community—with a goal of 5,000 total volunteer hours by the end of spring semester.  This week, the chapter achieved their goal.  One lucky student won a drawing for a free 3-credit class at Red Rocks, and all participants will be recognized at a reception on May 9.
