PrintFriendlyEmail

“I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true.  I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live up to what light I have.”  Inspirational words by President Abraham Lincoln were expressed in a keynote address by Ginny Mohrbutter, Executive Director of the United Way Tar River Region on the evening of April 21 to an audience of newly inducted Phi Theta Kappa Society members.  Twenty-three spring 2015 and twenty-seven fall 2014 inductees inductees were welcomed into the Beta Upsilon Delta Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa in the Brown Auditorium at Nash Community College.  Each inductee received a white rose as a symbol of purity and the beauty of life.  Mohrbutter also presented the Phi Theta Kappa inductees with a challenge in four particular areas as each moves forward on their professional and educational paths; Scholarship, to share the love of learning with those around them; Leadership, to show honor, respect and integrity and work to empower others; Service, to do more and do it more often; and to be Grateful, serve and lead with a grateful heart to make life more joyful and meaningful.

Phi Theta Kappa recognizes and encourages the academic achievement of two-year college students.  Members must possess a 3.5 GPA or higher and demonstrate commitment to leadership and service.  For more information about the Beta Upsilon Delta Chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa Society at Nash Community College, contact Robin Latham, Chapter Advisor.
