Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society chapter at Tri-C Westshore Campus earns national honors

The Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society chapter at the Westshore Campus of Cuyahoga Community College in Westlake was recognized with multiple awards at this year's PTK convention.

Westshore’s Beta Upsilon Beta chapter won two prestigious Hallmark Awards while being named a Top 100 Chapter in the nation. The convention – known as NerdNation – took place April 16-18 in San Antonio, Texas.

The Hallmark Awards reflect the scholarly ideals of PTK and recognize superior individual and chapter achievement. There are more than 1,250 PTK chapters worldwide.

Beta Upsilon Beta received a Distinguished Chapter Award and a Distinguished Honors in Action Project Award. The success of a community health fair organized by the group contributed to both honors.

Chapter officers Aswin Bikkani and Rita Loudon represented Beta Upsilon Beta at NerdNation.

The national recognition follows the chapter winning 10 awards at the PTK regional convention held in March at Columbus State Community College.
