Regional Convention.

The Beta Rho Epsilon Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) at St. Louis Community College-Wildwood recently received two honors at the Missouri Regional Convention.

Beta Rho Epsilon received the College Project Award. Titled “Try This On,” the chapter’s project aimed to connect students with the community through volunteer opportunities. 

According to Caitlyn Leeker, chapter president, the project was an overwhelming success. 

“From the Megan Meier Foundation, to the Endangered Wolf Center, the Rotary Club of West St. Louis County, and more, our project exposed students to a variety of volunteer opportunities at local nonprofits and small businesses,” Leeker said. “It’s rewarding to give back to the community, and it’s wonderful to know that we helped students find ways to get involved and make a difference.”  

Beta Rho Epsilon also was named a 5-Star Chapter. This designation is the highest level a chapter can receive, and it reflects the chapter’s commitment to academic achievement, leadership, service and fellowship. The chapter has earned the 5-Star designation every year since 2011.

“These awards reflect our dedication and commitment to our college campus and our community,” Leeker said. “I am proud of the work we have accomplished together, and I am honored to serve as the president of PTK at STLCC-Wildwood.”
