Awards Lin March 2016Mar 23, 2016 – Middlesex Community College is proud to announce that the Beta Gamma Xi chapter of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) has been recognized for outstanding achievements at the Phi Theta Kappa New England Regional Convention held at the Community College of Rhode Island on March 19.

During the convention, the Beta Gamma Xi Chapter received the Five Star Level Chapter Recognition, the Connecticut C4 Participation Recognition, and the Honors in Action Distinguished Theme Award.  This is the first time the Beta Gamma Xi chapter has reached the Five Star level of recognition. Only 10 chapters in New England Region attained this level.

Additionally, Dr. Lin Lin of Manchester, PTK co-advisor, was awarded the New England Region Horizon Award. The Horizon Award recognized personal contribution to the region and is given to a chapter advisor who attains a new level of achievement and was only awarded to two advisors this year from over 100 advisors in the New England Region.

“Our chapter officers and members worked very hard and I am very proud of them. I would like to thank my fellow advisors Landi Hou and Eva Jones,” said Dr. Lin. “Without their day-to-day interaction with Phi Theta Kappa students, we couldn’t have won any of these awards.”
