Sevasti Silvia, Phi Theta Kappa District President

“Phi Theta Kappa is not only an honors society that promotes academic growth, but also a vibrant community for students to collaborate with their peers and advisors. PTK provides countless opportunities to learn, lead, and volunteer. I personally have grown as a student and a leader through my experience with PTK. PTK is an amazing honors society to be a member of, and the positive impact the program has on your confidence is incredible. The experiences you encounter, skills you develop, and relationships you create in PTK will never go away.”
