TCC communications instructor Dr. Tomas Ramos is one of 30 Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) advisors from around the world to earn PTK’s 2014 Distinguished Advisor Award.
Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) is an international community college honors organization. High-achieving students are invited to join PTK clubs, or “chapters.”
The award recognizes advisors who have served at least four years and have made significant contributions to chapter growth.
PTK ranks its chapters on scale of 1-5 stars. Under Ramos’ leadership, the TCC chapter jumped from 1 to 5 stars in just 5 years.
“I think one of the reasons I received the distinction is based on the fact that TCC has had the last three regional officer presidents from TCC,” said Ramos in an email interview.
Two regional vice presidents have also come from TCC, and the college has hosted district and regional conferences. For the last two years, the chapter has put together an award-winning “Honors in Action” project.
Ramos and his fellow recipients will be recognized during NerdNation 2014<nerdnation.ptk.
