CONCORD – The accolades keep rolling in for the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society chapter at NHTI. The chapter has been named a 2023 REACH Chapter, which recognizes and rewards those that excel in membership development; and separately, PTK member and NHTI student David Pantling has just been named a 2024 New Century Transfer Scholar and will receive a $2,250 scholarship.

Phi Theta Kappa’s REACH Rewards program recognizes and rewards Phi Theta Kappa chapters that excel in membership development, assuring that as many students as possible receive the benefits of membership — including scholarships and increased opportunities for engagement with peers and faculty on campus, which lead to higher rates of completion. In recognition of this achievement, NHTI will receive five PTK graduation stoles to be worn by students and/or chapter members at Commencement in celebration of their college completion milestone.

Pantling’s scholarship comes courtesy of New Century Transfer Scholars, who selects winners based on their academic accomplishments, leadership, and activities, and how they extend their intellectual talents beyond the classroom. Over 2,200 students from more than 1,300 college campuses nationwide were nominated. Only one New Century Transfer Scholar is selected from each state. The program is sponsored by The Coca-Cola Foundation, the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation, PTK, and the American Association of Community Colleges.

“We congratulate David for receiving this prestigious scholarship, and we are honored to partner with the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation, The Coca-Cola Foundation, and the AACC to recognize these outstanding achievements,” said PTK president and CEO Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner, who spoke at NHTI in 2023. “Scholarship programs like this are integral for creating opportunities for two-year college students to succeed and for putting college completion within reach.”
