I chose Volunteer as my role, but I am also a donor and an alumnus. I cannot begin to describe the impact Phi Theta Kappa has had on my life. I had the opportunity to work directly with their foundation during my time as an active member. The Phi Theta Kappa Foundation gives an abundance of support towards the success of its members and other community college students. I am over satisfied in knowing that my donations are going towards higher education and college completion scholarships.
There is a different kind of feeling of accomplishment when you become a member of an organization by invitation. Especially when that invitation is due to your GPA for a science related major at the age of 34, when aside from a GED the highest grade completed was 8th. It is an organization that breeds success and pride in people of all ages, because it was earned alone, based strictly on hard work and dedication to be a better person for yourself, your family and humanity.
