An honor to serve through PTK
Phi Theta Kappa’s (PTK) Regional Officer Team, along with the approval of the Regional Executive Committee, has unanimously elected Northampton Community College (NCC) student Evan Meister as PTK Pennsylvania State President for 2020-21, a high achievement and honor.
One of the staff advisors for Beta Beta Chi, Fran Boshell, assistant director of Student Life, said, “This is a big deal for the Monroe chapter of PTK and NCC on a whole. We are very proud of him.”
Evan is a dual-enrollment student and an engineering major at NCC. A member of the Beta Beta Chi Chapter at NCC’s Monroe Campus, he submitted a video of his intentions should he be elected to the position he originally ran for, Middle States Regional President. He also campaigned on social media until voting began.
Evan said, “It was a lot of work but a ton of fun and a huge learning experience for me. I loved being able to meet all the other candidates and everyone from the region who was a part of it.”
Each chapter of PTK gets the chance to vote. On the day of the election, the new Middle States Regional President was announced, and Evan was the runner-up. The newly elected Regional Officer Team found his campaign compelling and thought he would be an excellent choice as state officer, thus electing him for Pennsylvania State President.
He joined the team of Middle States Regional Presidents from each state/territory in the region, New Jersey, Delaware, DC/Maryland and Pennsylvania. As a Regional Officer, Evan will be provided leadership opportunities, resources and support to serve as president.
“I'm going to work hard to achieve a greater amount of chapter participation within my state, and I would like to work towards implementing convenient communication channels to help connect every chapter within our region. I'm excited to help serve over the coming year. I'm confident our team will do a fantastic job leading over the coming months,” says Evan, gratefully.
NCC congratulates Evan on all he has achieved to date and will continue to achieve in his new role representing our state and college!
