Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society

What is PTK?

Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) is recognized as the official honor society for community colleges by the American Association of Community Colleges. The purpose of Phi Theta Kappa is to recognize and encourage scholarship among two-year college students. To achieve this purpose, Phi Theta Kappa provides opportunity for the development of leadership and service, for an intellectual climate for exchange of ideas and ideals, for lively fellowship for scholars, and for stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence. 

Co-Advisors: Mark Lowe and Deb Rimkus

RELAY FOR LIFE: TEAM QUINEFROGS

Cancer has touched all of us in some way, and we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We’ll spend the next months fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, from 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 4 until 10 a.m. on Sunday, June 4 at Roseland Park in Woodstock, CT, we’ll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.

We need PTK volunteers to join Team Quinefrogs!  We also invite friends and family of PTK members and anyone associated with QVCC to join our team too!  Please join our team and help us raise funds to make a difference in the fight against cancer. The Beta Beta Pi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) at Quinebaug Valley Community College (QVCC) is participating in the Northeast Connecticut Relay for Life for the sixth consecutive year.  Together, Team Quinefrogs will be a part of making a difference in this important cause.

If you are unable to join our team, please consider a donation to our team.  Every dollar makes a difference in the fight against cancer.
