UAS Ketchikan Honor Society Promoted to Two Star Chapter
September 04, 2012
The Five Star Chapter Development Plan serves as a blueprint for developing a strong chapter, improves student engagement and recognizes progress in the attainment of goals set by the chapter. Using the Five Star Plan as a guide, chapters enhance their strategies to recognize eligible students, provide significant personal and professional development opportunities for members through Honors in Action, and build a working relationship with the college administration by becoming active on campus and in the community.
UAS Ketchikan’s Alpha Rho Beta Chapter has become a Two Star Chapter by having two inductions in the past academic year; holding scholarly events such as hosting regular community guest speakers during Spring Semester 2012; service activities including having PTK members speak with Schoenbar students about college life; awarding a tuition scholarship to Maggey Baca, winner of a scholarly essay contest at Ketchikan High school; membership campaigns and other activities.
The Two Star Chapter award was earned during the 2011-2012 academic year under the leadership of President Dawn Rauwolf, Vice President Carrie Bolshakoff, and Secretary Erin Edwards.
PTK serves to recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students and promote scholarship on campus and in the community. PTK is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 1.3 million members and 1,200 chapters. Students must achieve a 3.5 grade point average in order to be invited to join the honor society.
