Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Fellowship are the cornerstone of the Phi Theta Kappa Honors society, and a well-rounded member should be able to demonstrate proficiency in each one of them.

I got elected as Vice President of Leadership, and since then I have been continuously looking for new ways to better our chapter. Communicating directly with our members and answering all their wonders is very important for me, as well as maintaining a good partnership with them.

For this reason, we have been attending induction ceremonies of other chapters. Additionally, we organized a “Fun Day” event on campus during the first half of the summer and invited all the chapters of the Dallas Community College District to be part of it. To our great surprise, most of the chapters came, and our guests let us know afterwards how happy they were to participate in such an event. This initiative paved the way for us for collaborating with sister-chapters in the
