In addition, two Clark College students were elected regional officers of PTK for the 2009-2010 year: Lorene Boyd was elected president; Kathy (Brown) Rogers was elected district II vice president.

“Few words can describe the pride I feel for the active members who made this success happen,” said Communication Studies Professor and PTK chapter advisor Deena Bisig. “The opportunities for personal growth for these students is invaluable, and I am honored to be a stimulant for that growth. We are all proud to represent Clark College and appreciate the support the community provides us in all of the many projects on which we work.”

The Northwest region of PTK is comprised of 52 chapters in Washington, Northern Idaho, Montana, Alaska and Alberta, Canada. Members of Clark’s PTK chapter will be attending the international convention in Grapevine, Texas, in April.
