During the induction ceremony, PTK co-advisors Walter Montgomery, Dean, Learning Commons and Educational Partnerships; Dr. Chandler Fry, Instructor, English; and Kailey Oakley, Career Coach, Person County welcomed the inductees into the honor society.

“As a co-advisor, I am thrilled to witness the passion and dedication these new members bring to our chapter,” Oakley said. “Their induction marks not only a celebration of academic excellence but also a commitment to service, leadership, and lifelong learning. Congratulations to our newest PTK members, and here’s to the journey ahead, filled with endless opportunities for growth and impact.” 

PTK members James “Jed” Rose and Thomas “Tommy” Williams also welcomed the inductees and gave a brief history of PTK along with the meanings of the honor society’s symbols and meanings of the Greek words phronimon, thumos and katharotes, which stand for wisdom, aspiration, and purity.  

Dr. Pamela G. Senegal, PCC President, offered brief remarks to inductees, encouraging them to dream big. She referenced one of her role models, educator and civil rights activist Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune, who founded what is today known as Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, Florida.

“Use this opportunity to push yourself, find your role models, continue your education and take advantage of all PTK has to offer,” Senegal said.
