The GRCC Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa recently attended a regional conference along with 31 other chapters. We had nine students in attendance with us at this conference where the whole region elected new Regional Board members. For the first time ever, GRCC had a student running for a regional board position.
We are excited to announce that Morgan Brown was elected Regional Board President for the 2017-2018 academic school year.
Morgan ran against five of her peers from across the region for this position and each candidate was first required to give a speech and answer questions. They also campaigned at a political rally to greet members and voting delegates prior to the election.
Morgan also won the prestigious Mike Sherman Candidate Award given to a candidate who was running for a regional position and was deemed the most motivational and supportive by their fellow candidates.
Other awards won by our chapter were:
- Continued 5 Star excellence (for earning a 5 star status for the second year in a row).
- Top 3 Officer Team for GRCC students Morgan Brown, Marcus Barissi, Gino Gonzalez, Caleb Graveldinger and Alex Brown.
- Top 2 Advisor Team for Erin Busscher and Lynnae Selberg.
- Visual Arts Award for Morgan Brown (her second consecutive win in this category).
