CCC Dean of Instruction Amy Madsen-Smith and Dean of Students Dr. Michelle Allmendinger announced the new members. Guest speaker Chelsie Pope presented an uplifting program about the opportunities Phi Theta Kappa has given to her life.

The CCC chapter was recently recognized with the Paragon Award for new advisor Rob Schadt. The Alpha Theta Beta Chapter Advisors also include CCC Instructors Gina Bielski and Shirley Turnis. The trio commented, "We are very proud of our PTK chapter, and are honored to induct so many new Phi Theta Kappa members. We are so grateful for the support of our administrators, faculty, and staff at Clinton Community College."
The Alpha Theta Beta chapter has been awarded 5-Start Chapter status, was named Distinguished Chapter, and received the Most Distinguished Honors in Action Theme Award. CCC President Dr. Brian Kelly stated, "We are very fortunate to have such a strong and nationally recognized PTK chapter. Our students have worked very hard to earn this honor and it is always a pleasure to recognize hard work."
During the year, the chapter has completed several projects including collecting alumni memories, a little lending library, sending more than 1,000 holiday cards to our military troops, handing out stress relief bags to students and faculty during finals, and upkeep with the pollinator garden.
In addition, the Alpha Theta Beta Chapter advisors were honored for their dedication and service amid the numerous challenges 2021 presented. The CCC Chapter was named a REACH chapter for their growth in membership, and will receive free graduation regalia through the Phi Theta Kappa REACH Rewards program.
