Students in Phi Theta Kappa, the national honor society at Hagerstown Community College, recently participated in the Middle States Region Officers’ Academy and Honors Institute.
This year’s institute was held at Kings College in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. The institute’s purpose was to assist student officers in planning activities that encompass specific Phi Theta Kappa initiatives.
Student officers who attended the event included Allen Calvert of Rohrersville; Heather Geary and Rick Howe, both of Boonsboro; Andrea Theodoru of Smithsburg; Leann Tomlin of Hagerstown; and Allie Villatoro of Myersville, Md.
In addition, Howe, Phi Theta Kappa president at HCC, was elected the Maryland president of the Middle States Region. He is the first regional student representative to be selected from HCC.
