A Message from the President and CEO

Chapters across the country are already asking how they can best support our PTK family in the affected areas. In response, we have established the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund.

In the same way that the Oberndorf Lifeline to Completion Scholarship helps members who face an unanticipated need, all donations made to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund will be used to help members stay enrolled and on track to complete college despite this tremendous setback.

Chapters and regions have also expressed interest in supporting recovery efforts through volunteering. In order to keep the affected areas clear for first responders, we feel as though this would not be helpful at this time. We will continue work with the Texas Regional Coordinator, advisors, and college presidents to determine how we can best support members, chapters, and colleges as recovery efforts continue.

Time and time again, Phi Theta Kappa members have demonstrated their strong ability to persist in the face of all kinds of obstacles. The Phi Theta Kappa family stands ready to offer our assistance during the difficult process of recovery. Please join me in making a donation to support our members in need — and encourage others to do the same.
