Phi Theta Kappa donates to Boys and Girls Club
July 29, 2011
Cerro Coso Community College's chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society in conjunction with a local church donated pillowcases to The Southern Sierra Boys and Girls Club for an arts and crafts project for a recent sleepover. Twenty youths participated in the event and enjoyed the fun and games, making "walking tacos" and gazing at the stars with the help of a local astronomical group. Loretta Christiansen, Phi Theta Kappa Service and Fellowship Officer, organized the donation to support the efforts of the Boys and Girls Club and local youths. The Cerro Coso chapter of Phi Theta Kappa recognizes the importance of the Boys and Girls Club which inspires and empowers area youths ages 6-18 to achieve their maximum potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. Phi Theta Kappa is an international honor society for students in two-year colleges that honors and encourages participation in leadership and service.
