MEMBER AND OFFICER AWARDS

It’s often said that the more one puts into PTK membership, the greater benefit one receives in return. Meet the members who took this notion to heart in 2021. Their leadership and enthusiasm for the Society’s Hallmarks inspired others to join them in their quest to make a difference in their colleges and communities.

Distinguished Member Awards

The Distinguished Members are selected based on a student’s embodiment of the Hallmarks of the Society through Honors in Action and other chapter activities. These award recipients must not have held a chapter, regional, or international officer position during 2020.
