Terra’s Phi Theta Kappa Chapter to host Ohio Regional Conference

Students from two-year colleges across the state will be gathering at Terra State Community College later this month for a conference with their peers.
The Alpha Mu Epsilon chapter of Phi Theta Kappa at Terra is hosting the Leadership in Action Conference, “The Culture of Competition,” on July 27-28.
Phi Theta Kappa is an international honor society for students in two-year schools. This is the first time Terra has hosted the annual event.
“For Terra to host the Ohio regional conference here on campus is something I never would have imagined,” said Seth Sholl, a PTK member from Tiffin. “It’s a big event with lots of two-year students. It will be great to talk to them and find out where they are from and where they are going.”
Fellow member Kenneth Gyan of Clyde agrees.
