December 16, 2020 | Campus News

Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Advisor Kevin Dixon was recognized for 25 years of service to the honor society at East Central College.

Dixon, associate professor of biology, has worn many hats in the Chi Delta Chapter of PTK since 1995, including co-adviser, adviser and contact advisor.

He got his start with the organization as a student.

“I joined as a student and a couple of the student officers asked me to get involved,” he said. “I kept going from there.”

ECC President Dr. Jon Bauer presented Dixon with a pin to commemorate the 25 years of service and time given to students.

“This is a great accomplishment and Kevin has done a lot for PTK over the years,” said Bauer, who also was a PTK member as a student.

Dixon added that PTK is an organization where students from all areas of study get involved.

“I like that I get a chance to work with students from majors all across the college,” he said.

Phi Theta Kappa honor society recognizes and encourages scholarship among two-year college students. The organization provides students with opportunities for individual growth and development through participation in honors, leadership, service and fellowship programming. Dixon is associate professor of biology at ECC.

Students must have at least a 3.4 GPA and be a full-time student for one semester in order to be invited into PTK. After being inducted, students must maintain at least a 3.2 GPA.
