On Wednesday April 4, the Phi Theta Kappa club held an event to welcome its newest members.
The guest of honor for the event was Cheri Richardson, a former student of Salt Lake Community College, who addressed the audience of both new and veteran Phi Theta Kappans.
“When looking for leadership, look in the mirror,” said Richardson.
Richardson talked about her experiences at SLCC. She is proud to say that she is an alumnus of SLCC. She would like to hear other students say the same, rather than “they just go to SLCC.”
A small film clip was shown after Richardson spoke, in which many members and former members of Phi Theta Kappa talked about their experiences and the benefits of being a member of the honor society.
Jamie Kelsch, the president of SLCC Phi Theta Kappa, took the podium after the video.
Kelsch said that the Phi Theta Kappa is a club where students can excel, and that there are many benefits to being a member of the honor society.
“It only takes one Phi Theta Kappa member to make a difference,” said Kelsch.
