A paper submitted by students in the Temple College chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society was one of 15 selected for publication in the inaugural issue of Change Makers: Phi Theta Kappa Journal of Student Leadership.

The paper details the chapter’s involvement in establishing a new alumni program for Temple College. Other papers in the publication cover a range of topics such as helping meet student needs during the COVID-19 pandemic and helping students strengthen their life skills.

Nearly 430 projects were submitted for possible inclusion in the journal. PTK President and CEO Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner said the 15 projects selected for publication represent “the very best examples of how students can work with their college leadership to affect change on their campuses and in their communities.”

The projects featured in the publication were done for PTK’s College Project program, which encourages students to work with their college administrators to develop leadership- and service-based projects that support the mission of their colleges and generate positive changes on their campuses.

Founded in 1918, Phi Theta Kappa is a selective, international honor society that recognizes academic achievement of two-year college students and provides opportunities for them to grow as scholars and leaders. The Temple College chapter of PTK, which is known as the Lambda Theta chapter, was chartered in November 1960.
