Cape Fear Community College (CFCC) is proud to announce that Erica Spivey, a current CFCC student, has been inducted as the 2008-09 Regional Vice President of North Carolina for the international honor society, Phi Theta Kappa.Ã‚Â As Vice President, Erica will represent North Carolina at regional and national conferences and events.Ã‚Â Along with other officers, she will develop regional goals and organize events and activities for all of the NC chapters of Phi Theta Kappa.Ã‚Â
CFCC’s chapter, Alpha Chi Sigma, won many awards at this year’s regional banquet in Clemmons, North Carolina, where thirty chapters attended from community colleges across the Carolinas.Ã‚Â Along with being elected as Regional Vice President, Erica Spivey won one of the awards given to the most distinguished chapter president.
“Erica has been a leader on campus, in the community, and has unlimited potential. She has started a mentor program, promoted recycling on campus, and leads by example in every endeavor she undertakes,” says Jason Earnhardt, Phi Theta Kappa Advisor.
Phi Theta Kappa’s mission is two-fold:Ã‚Â 1) to recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students and (2) to provide opportunities for individual growth and development through participation in honors, leadership, service, and fellowship programming.
As Regional Vice President, Erica will focus on the honors topic, “Paradox of Affluence:Ã‚Â Choices, Challenges, and Consequences.”Ã‚Â The honor’s topic is international within Phi Theta Kappa and encourages the study and exploration of the topic through case study and chapter activities.Ã‚Â Erica believes it is important for students to realize both the pros and cons of choices and she dedicates much of her time to mentoring and educating others on this and other important topics.
