Phi Theta Kappa members honored for volunteer work
Posted on: January 26, 2012
College of the Mainland students Merretta Vasquez and Taylor Hernandez volunteered to teach a class on American cultures as part of the “Scouting on the Boardwalk,” an event for Boy Scouts of America groups from Texas.
Vasquez, of Texas City, and Hernandez, of Galveston, both are members of Phi Theta Kappa, the national community college honor society. Their volunteer work was recognized at the COM Board of Trustees meeting on Tuesday.
“I thought it was amazing,” Vasquez said. “All of the boys were intelligent and eager to learn. We talked about different cultures and how they shape our country.”
