Jeannine Shaffer, a student at the Wildwood campus of St. Louis Community College, and Joshua Trader, a student from Michigan, gave a joint presentation this morning to a group of attendees at the International Convention of Phi Theta Kappa in San Jose, CA. Shaffer currently serves as the vice president of the Missouri region of Phi Theta Kappa. Trader serves as the secretary and treasurer of the Michigan region and is a student at Delta College.

Their presentation was entitled, “C4 Collaborations: Bigger is Better!”  Shaffer shared her experience of collaborating with faculty, administrators and other student groups within St. Louis Community College to organize a series of campus events and a "Commit to Complete Rally" attended by nearly two hundred students at Kiener Plaza last fall.

“Your C4 might look different than ours, but the focus is the same- creating a student led culture of completion on your campus and in your community,” said Shaffer. “It doesn’t matter if you are at a small campus, you can create a meaningful Commit to Complete initiative if you reach out to partner with the critical stakeholders who can help you take it to the next level.”

The presentation was attended by 130 participants of the conference.
