PTK members have some fun before getting down to business


PTKNearly 50 Phi Theta Kappa officers and advisors from around the state met for a weekend of fun, fellowship and regional business.  The two-day event began Friday at Tuttle Creek State Park near Manhattan, KS where participants enjoyed swimming, canoeing, and consuming mass quantities of hamburgers, hot dogs and s’mores. 

Attendees spent the night in cabins and tents at the park where they braved late-night storms. Saturday morning the conference moved to the Highland Community College outreach center located in Wamego, KS.  Activities included a regional business meeting, officer training conducted by the regional officers and an advisor meeting. The chapters then broke out into their perspective districts and used the rest of the time to begin planning the regional conference for which each is responsible during the 2009-2010 academic year. 

The group enjoyed lunch and more networking before heading home. Attending from Cowley were chapter officers Taylor Oliver, Greg Anderson, James Walling and Becky Johnson; regional officer Irona Cliver and faculty advisor, Nancy Ayers.
