Lane’s Nominations to All Oregon Academic Team!

Now that we have the Honors Program and PTK Sigma Zeta Chapter back up and running, we’ve been able to nominate two students to the All Oregon Academic Team after missing this opportunity in the recent past.

This team is sponsored by the Oregon Community College Association. As explained on their website:

“The All-Oregon Community College Academic Team, a part of the national All-State Community College Academic Team program, recognizes high achieving two-year college students who demonstrate academic excellence and intellectual rigor combined with leadership and service that extends their education beyond the classroom to benefit society. Phi Theta Kappa, community college presidents and community college state associations sponsor All-State Community College Academic Team ceremonies in 38 participating states.”

Our two nominees are outstanding students who are in the Honors Program, are PTK members, and also tutor in the Writing Center.

Both nominees are excellent representatives of Lane Community College and very deserving of this honor!

Honors & Phi Theta Kappa Info Session

This week, Casey Reid and I organized an information session for the Honors Program and Phi Theta Kappa. Nine people attended our event. In addition to serving as an information session, this event fulfilled the honors orientation requirement for students in the program.

At this event, we reviewed the benefits of these two honors opportunities, the requirements for each, and the ways in which participating in both could be especially beneficial for students planning to transfer to four-year schools.

We also introduced students to the Honors Librarian, Claire Dannenbaum (far right) and the Honors Writing Tutor, student Sabrina Piccolo (third from right):

A highlight was presenting Sabrina and Holly Kolodziejczak (second from right) with their honors medallions for successfully completing the Honors Program!

And of course, we had lots of snacks!

Casey and I will be offering several more information sessions before the end of this academic year, hopefully in our soon-to-be-realized Honors and PTK Student Lounge!
