WINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College’s Beta Nu Upsilon chapter of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society was recognized this spring for community service excellence.

According to PCC Science Instructor Joy Moses-Hall, who serves as an advisor to the PTK group, Beta Nu Upsilon was named the 4th-Most Distinguished Chapter in the Carolinas Region for 2020. “This means that the combined projects completed by the PCC chapter scored fifth out of more than 80 active PTK chapters in North and South Carolina,” she said, adding that the award was presented last month.

Hall said Beta Nu Upsilon’s activities included a talent show in the fall of 2020 and a student survey the organization conducted in the spring of 2020 as part PCC’s Achieving the Dream initiative. Both projects, she said, were adapted to meet health safety guidelines and took place virtually.

Hall credited students Somer Scott, Holt Teague, Hannah Baines, Malik Sutton and Laura Hutchinson for their leadership on Beta Nu Upsilon activities, which also included soliciting donations for the local animal shelter and Washington’s Zion Homeless Shelter. She also thanked the PCC Student Government Association for assisting with event promotion and recruiting talent show participants.
