Clark State Community College graduate Angelina Nance is one of thirty Phi Theta Kappa members who will be honored with the 2014 Distinguished Chapter Officer Awards, presented by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society during NerdNation 2014, the annual convention in Orlando, Florida, April 24-26. Recipients will receive commemorative medallions and be honored during the Hallmark Awards Gala.
Nance graduated in May 2013 and was the president of Clark State's Student Senate, a student ambassador, a work-study in the Office of Career Management and a member of the women's Eagles softball team and Student Conduct Committee. She is continuing her social work studies at The Ohio State University Lima Campus. Her ultimate education goals include completing a master's degree in cultural diversity and teach at a community college.
Distinguished Chapter Officers must be nominated by their chapters through the Hallmark Awards application process and are chosen based on a student's demonstration of leadership, promotion of Honors in Action, other engagement in the Society and enthusiasm for the Hallmarks of the Society (Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Fellowship). They were selected by a panel of judges from more than 450 nominees internationally.
"Angelina's time at Clark State exemplified scholarship, leadership, service and fellowship," said Twila Murray, career specialist and Phi Theta Kappa advisor at Clark State. "Before she graduated, she was named a Phi Theta Kappa New Century Scholar – the top scholar in Ohio, a Phi Theta Kappa Guistwhite Scholar and a member of the All-Ohio Academic First Team and the All-USA Community College Academic Team."
