The Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Honor Society chapter at County College of Morris (CCM) continues to stand out among its peers.
Alpha Kappa Kappa (AKK), CCM’s chapter of the international honor society that recognizes the scholarly pursuits of two-year college students, received three prestigious awards at the organization’s annual conference in Orlando, FL, held April 24-26.
Topping the list of accolades presented to AKK was the Distinguished Chapter Award, handed out to only 50 chapters internationally. The chapter also received the Distinguished Honors in Action Project Award. In addition, AKK was named one of the top 100 PTK chapters internationally.
"The continued accomplishments of the Alpha Kappa Kappa chapter and its leadership team are a tribute to the work they have done in bringing scholarship, leadership, and service to County College of Morris and the surrounding community,” said Dr. Bette Simmons, vice president of Student Development and Enrollment Management at CCM. “Working with these students on a daily basis, you see how truly deserving they are of this recognition.”
The awards come a month after the PTK Middle States Regional Convention, where AKK won numerous awards including the top honor, the coveted Distinguished Chapter Award. The honor is given to the chapter chosen as the region’s best each year and was one of five regional distinctions the chapter collected.
This academic year’s AKK officers are Anhelina Mahdzyar, president, of Randolph; Kelby Clark, vice president of leadership, of Pine Brook; Aaron DelMundo, vice president of fellowship, of Randolph; Renata Mauriz, vice president of service, of Succasunna; Angelique Onorati, vice president of scholarship, of Mendham ; Nicole Russo, treasurer, of Hopatcong; and Carlos Herrera, secretary, of Morristown.
