Laurie Freeman, associate professor of science, was recently honored with the Phi Theta Kappa Hallmark Award. This award is given to a PTK Regional Coordinator for Distinguished Service.
There are 1,200 PTK Chapters across the world with only 29 regional coordinators. Freeman, who just completed five years service as New York’s Regional coordinator, was the sole recipient of this award, presented to her at PTK’s Annual Convention in Seattle, Wash. recently.
The Hallmark Awards Mission Statement: The Hallmark Awards, which reflects the scholarly ideals of Phi Theta Kappa, serves to recognize superior individual and chapter achievement in Society programs. In this program, chapters compete against one another. Participation encourages excellence, reflects fairness, recognizes quality, and leads to enhanced student, advisor, and chapter development.
