Onondaga’s student honor society, Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), was honored as one of the top 100 chapters out of 1,200 chapters both nationally and internationally. Onondaga’s PTK chapter, Alpha Zigma Zeta, was singled out because of its students' efforts in action projects. Its "Chopped" event was a cooking competition and raffle that raised $700 for the Central New York Food Bank, as well as raising awareness about food scarcity.
The members of Alpha Zigma Zeta also showed an outstanding commitment to volunteerism:
“The dedication and spirit of volunteerism our students showed was remarkable. They can truly say they made our community a better place to live,” said Annie Tuttle, Chapter Advisor for PTK at Onondaga.
Greg Guevara, a General Studies major from Weedsport, will start the 2014-15 academic year as president of Onondaga’s PTK chapter. He has high goals for himself and his fellow members. “We want to continue our momentum and show the community it can depend on us to help with volunteerism and fundraising. We want organizations to automatically think of us when they are looking for assistance.”
