PTK "angels" give gifts to eleven families
The Christmas wrapping paper was flying on Monday night when the Mulvane Phi Theta Kappa group met to wrap the gift donations from their Angel Tree located at the Mulvane Center. Eleven families consisting of over 50 individuals were provided Christmas gifts, most receiving more than one. The recipients are clients of Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Sedgwick and Sumner counties. Phi Theta Kappa executive vice president, Rebecca Johnson, who works for BB/BS, chaired the project and was very happy with the response. Johnson commented, "The students, faculty and staff at the Mulvane Center are very generous and continue to strongly support our Phi Theta Kappa projects. We are very grateful to all of them." The group met at the home of faculty advisor, Nancy Ayers, in Mulvane and also shared lots of holiday treats. Those attending were: Irona Cliver, Saundra Highsmith, Rebecca Johnson and daughter, Kylee, James Walling and Emily Zerger. Alumni members, Tina Wohlford and Keoki Waipa, also came by to say hello and share their experiences from their first semester at four-year university.
