The four chapters of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College have been named 2021 REACH Rewards Chapters. Winning chapters were chosen based on an increase in their membership acceptance rate to 15 percent or higher during the 2020 calendar year.
Through the REACH Awards, or Recognizing Excellence in Acceptance and Completion with Honors, chapters receive free Phi Theta Kappa stoles for officers and/or members to wear at graduation. The number of stoles each chapter receives is based on how many new students are recruited to the chapter during the previous year.
The MGCCC chapters winning the honor include the following:
- Beta Tau Eta Chapter, George County Center
- Omicron Alpha Chapter, Harrison County Campus
- Pi Epsilon Chapter, Jackson County Campus
- Gamma Nu Chapter, Perkinston Campus
The REACH Rewards program was established to encourage PTK membership and to provide more students with outstanding opportunities. PTK members have access to $48 million in scholarships — $1 million in competitive scholarships through the Phi Theta Kappa Foundation and more than $46 million in transfer scholarships to over 850 four-year colleges.
