Phi Theta Kappa members from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College’s Jackson County Campus attended the Phi Theta Kappa International Convention in Nashville, Tennessee, April 5-9.
The Pi Epsilon Chapter at the Jackson County Campus was recognized as one of the top 100 chapters in Phi Theta Kappa out of more than 1,300 chapters. The results are based on a summation of scores from Honors in Action and College Projects. The team’s Honors in Action project was entitled “The Elephant in the Room” and it focused on breaking the negative stigmas associated with mental illnesses. The College project focused on getting students to meet with advisors for successful planning of course selection.
