Annual Phi Theta Kappa Celebration Goes Virtual

For the first time, the annual MCCA Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society celebration went virtual in response to the COVID-19 pandemic that has shifted classes online. Even though the Wednesday, April 22 in-person gathering was canceled, the moment was no less momentous with remarks Mun Y. Choi, President, University of Missouri System and Interim Chancellor, University of Missouri, the event sponsor, and Dr. Raymond Cummiskey, President of Jefferson College, served as the keynote.

Dr. Cummiskey is one of 10 retiring college presidents and chancellors recently recognized with the Michael Bennett Lifetime Achievement Award by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. These awards are given to retiring college presidents who have shown strong support of student success on their campus by recognizing academic achievement, leadership, and service among high-achieving students over the course of their career. Recipients are nominated by the students on their campus.
