Prospective Member Orientations

PTK-BOO has opened the spring 2015 recruitment period.  To help inform prospective members about the benefits of joining PTK, the Beta Omicron Omicron chapter will host three orientation sessions to explain the advantages of membership, how to join, and answer any questions eligible students have about the honors society.

The orientation sessions will be held on:

  • Tuesday, 1/27 at 5:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, 1/28 at 1:00 p.m.

These orientations are open to all prospective members who received and invitation to join Phi Theta Kappa.  If you feel you should have received an invitation to join, but did not, please contact Ms. Channell or Mrs. Luebke as soon as possible to find out if you are eligible to join.

Current members- if you would like to attend a session to speak with prospective members about your experience with PTK, please join us.  You are not required to attend, but welcome to join!

Blood Drive January 28th!

VA Blood Services logo

Want to lend a hand to your local community?  How about an arm instead!  Help BOO and the Virginia Blood Services with our next blood drive on Wednesday, January 28th!

The VA Blood Services will be on the Midlothian campus in Hamel hall, H109 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. taking donations.  If you would like to sign-up in advance, please stop by the registration table outside of the Midlothian library on the second floor of Hamel hall.  Walk-ins will be accepted as well.

BOO members can also help by staffing the registration table next week through the day before the drive (Tuesday, January 27).  Simply asking people to sign-up drastically increases our numbers of pre-registrations and donors.  Swing by the table whenever you have spare time to encourage folks to register to give. Remember, BOO members who volunteer five hours will receive their PTK tassel for free!

If you would like more information on donating or staffing the registration table, contact Ms. Channell or Dr. Kaplan.  You can also visit the VA Blood Services site for specific information on the donation process, http://www.vablood.org.

Angel Tree

Angel Tree

We have received our Angel! If you are not familiar with Angel Tree, it is a chance for us to share the holiday spirit with others in the community who are less fortunate.  The program helps provide local children with gifts for the holidays.

PTK-BOO has sponsored RicKylah, a four year old girl.  She would like to have a bike, Doc McStuffins and Dora toys and books, and a baby doll with hair.  Her parents have listed her needs as clothing, shoes, and underwear.  RicKylah’s sizes are:

  • pants: size 9 in girls
  • shirts: size 8/9 in girls
  • shoes: size 9 in youth

If you would like to donate items to RicKylah, please bring them to Ms. Channell in the Midlothian library.  Donations are due by Wednesday, December 3rd before 12:00 p.m.  If you would like to donate funds to help purchase items for our angel, contact Ms. Channell at mchannell@jtcc.edu for more information.  Please send questions to this email as well.
