Relay for Life 4/4/14

Join the Beta Omicron Omicron chapter of Phi Theta Kappa in supporting the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life event on Friday, April 4, 2014.  The event will be held at the University of Richmond’s Weinstein Gym from 6:00p.m. to 6:00a.m.

The timing of Relay for Life represents a person’s journey through their cancer diagnosis. The evening starts the event as the sunlight begins to dim at dusk and continues through the night, or the darkest stages of cancer.  The light of a new day represents the beginning of their life beyond cancer.  Relay for Life also celebrates those lost to cancer, those still battling, and the caregivers that support their loved ones. This event is truly special for all of those who have ever battled cancer or loved someone who has faced this disease. Proceeds from your registration goes towards supporting cancer research.

To register or to donate to this event, visit the Relay for Life page.  BOO’s team name is John Tyler Comm College Phi Theta Kappa Society and team registration is $10.00.  All PTK members are encouraged to register for the JTCC team.  Family and friends are welcome to join as well!  For more information, please contact Molli Channell or Dr. John Kirn.

Commit to Complete

Calling all BOO members!

Join us on February 10th and 11th from 12:00pm to 4:00pm outside the Midlothian Library on the second floor of Hamel Hall in Commit to Complete, an event hosted by the BOO Chapter to encourage all JTCC students to complete an education at John Tyler!

There are always barriers that can get in the way of degree completion, but PTK has collaborated to provide information to all students to help in this process.

We will have information on numerous programs here at John Tyler as well as other resources to help you along your journey to completing an education.

Attendants will also get to sign our Commit to Complete board, which will also be displayed when students graduate. Hot chocolate and cookies will be provided!

Please contact officers or advisors for information on volunteering for Commit to Complete.  These projects do not reach their full potential without the help of members! Please volunteer what time you can.  Thank you.
