Trident Technical College’s Alpha Epsilon Omicron chapter of Phi Theta Kappa brought home top honors at the South Carolina Technical Education Association (SCTEA) luncheon on February 24, in Myrtle Beach. The Student Community Involvement Project competition is designed to allow students in the Technical College system to showcase their community outreach projects. 

TTC’s Phi Theta Kappa chapter submitted their international honors project, “A Soldier’s Safety Net.” This project included creating a website that would help transitioning soldiers and their families as they go from military to civilian life. Alpha Epsilon Omicron created this project after learning that during this transition Veterans find themselves in the most need of assistance. They created a website that is a database of services available to veterans.

There were eleven submissions to the SCTEA competition and Trident Technical College’s Phi Theta Kappa chapter came in first place. The first place prize was $300.00 for the chapter. The awards were given at a luncheon in Myrtle Beach. Dr. Thornley and multiple Trident staff were in attendance. Phi Theta Kappa officers represented the chapter at the luncheon.
