Piedmont Community College (PCC) inducted nineteen students into the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society on March 25.

Two PCC students, Felipe Coyote and Lisa Fowler, were inducted into the Phi Theta Kappa Alumni Association.

PCC’s Alpha Upsilon Theta chapter has been very active during the 2014-2015 academic year. The team is currently working on “The Get OUT Movement”, a project that will provide Outdoor Utilization Training equipment to the Parks and Recreation facility in Yanceyville, NC. Alpha Upsilon Theta members will also participate in a 5K Run to support Autism Awareness in late April. The 5K team is selling awareness magnets for $5.00 each to cover the $25.00 entry fee. If you are interested in sponsoring a student’s entry fee, or buying a magnet to help the team, contact Heather Barker at 599-1181 or Edna Brown at 336-694-8059.
