Ivy Tech Bloomington student Monique Dallas wins president for Phi Theta Kappa state chapter

March 30, 2010

Bloomington, Ind. Monique Dallas, Ivy Tech business administration student, and member of Alpha Rho Sigma, was named president of the Indiana state chapter of Phi Theta Kappa honor society for two year schools.

On February 26-28, 2010 the Indiana Region of Phi Theta Kappa held their regional convention, where awards for outstanding chapters and elections for the upcoming regional officers occurred. Dallas was elected President of the Indiana Region for 2010-2011.

Dallas will carry the Indiana state flag during opening ceremonies at the Phi Theta Kappa International Convention in Orlando, Fla., April 8-10.

Chancellor John Whikehart says that he is proud that Monique, a Bloomington campus student, and multiple scholarship recipient has been elected president of the Indiana state chapter of Phi Theta Kappa. “Monique is an honors student leader who is involved in service activities outside of the classroom,” he said. “She has worked hard to achieve this great responsibility and Phi Theta Kappa is fortunate to have Monique serve as president of the state chapter.”

Phi Theta Kappa is built around four hallmarks which include scholarship, leadership, service and fellowship. There are 29 regional and/or state Phi Theta Kappa organizations, which organize service projects, hold conventions and leadership conferences, offer awards and scholarship programs, and conduct Regional Honors Institutes.

Phi Theta Kappa is the largest college honor society in the world with close to 1200 chapters worldwide.
