Santa Ana, CA, February 08, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Liz Monge of Pico Rivera, student activities coordinator at Santa Ana College, has been elected an honorary member of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society of the two-year college.
The award was presented to Monge in recognition of her distinguished service to the society and to the Alpha Beta Chapter at Santa Ana College, where she has worked for three years.
According to the Society’s web site, Phi Theta Kappa's mission is two-fold: 1) recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students and; 2) provide opportunities for individual growth and development through participation in honors, leadership, service and fellowship programming.
“This is a great honor,” said Monge, who received an Honorary Membership certificate at induction ceremonies held at Santa Ana College in November. “It is a pleasure to work with our students and to help them work toward the goals of Phi Theta Kappa.”
Founded in 1918, Phi Theta Kappa has grown to include more than 1200 chapters in all 50 states, Canada, Germany, and Japan. Santa Ana College’s Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society (Alpha Beta Chapter) is the oldest chapter in its region, established in 1929.
