During the ceremony, Dean of Students Bill Egeler, addressed the group:
“The development of soft skills, leadership and teamwork that can be gained from PTK is invaluable and will be important throughout your professional and personal life. I challenge you to continue your academic excellence and make the most of all the opportunities available to you at NMCC.”
Phi Theta Kappa gets involved with community service projects that either call for volunteering their time or for raising money in support of worthy causes. Students have the opportunity to gain personal fulfillment through this service, while also building skills that will follow them into the workforce.
