The Kappa Tau chapter of Phi Theta Kappa at MCC-Longview recently won several awards and had three chapter members elected as regional officers at its regional conference. In addition, the chapter won top awards at its national convention for their college project and their overall work as a chapter. This is the first time the MCC-Longview chapter has received these “highly-selective” recognitions.

At the regional convention, held March 2-4 in Jefferson City, the chapter was awarded the Five Star Chapter Development Plan, which is the highest recognition for a chapter performing required scholarship, leadership and service. Kelly Lucas was awarded Outstanding Chapter Officer for her service as vice president of Correspondence for the Kappa Tau Chapter. Co-advisor Jan Rog was awarded the Horizon Award for her work performing for the chapter and Missouri Region.

The College Project Hallmark award was given to three colleges in the Missouri region - Kappa Tau did the C4 project which encouraged students to commit to the completion of their degrees. The Honors in Action Project Hallmark was awarded due to its scholarly project on Safety on Campus. The Distinguished Issue award was received because to Kappa Tau’s Issue 7: Government and Public Policy.

During the international convention April 12-14 in Nashville, Tenn., Kappa Tau received three awards – Distinguished Chapter Award, Distinguished College Project Award and Top 100 Chapter Award for being a chapter with one of the highest scores for the sum of Honors in Action Project and College Project.
