Johnson Receives Collaborative Excellence Award
East Central College Nursing program graduate James Johnson was the recipient of the Collaborative Excellence Award.
The award highlights a student leader who may not always want to be at the forefront as a leader, but whose collaborative spirit proves essential to the success of the club and the maintenance of an encouraging environment.
Johnson was presented the award May 11 during the Campus Life and Leadership annual Student Achievement Night awards ceremony to celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of students.
Students are nominated for awards by faculty to recognize academic excellence, perseverance, and contributions to a culture of student success both in and out of the classroom.
Johnson, Marthasville, is a member of the Chi Delta chapter of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society in Union. He was nominated for the Collaborative Excellence Award by PTK advisors Kevin Dixon, Melanie Dixon and Dr. Wendy Pecka.
“James has consistently participated in PTK activities since joining the chapter during the Fall 2019 semester,” PTK advisors said. “This has continued throughout the time he has been a full-time nursing student at the Union campus.”
He worked with the officer team and fellow PTK members on both Honors in Action and College Project programs, as well as chapter and college activities.
Johnson was chosen by PTK officers and advisors as the honor society’s “Distinguished Chapter Member” for our Hallmark Awards entries, and he won that award at both the regional (state) and the international levels.
Johnson graduated May 14 with an Associate of Applied Science in Nursing.
