From April 6th-9th, three students, Zahra Corion Durante, Nekohya Cheltenham and Shaniece Morgan to-gether with advisor, Mrs. Debra Hodge attended the 99th International Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Convention held in Nashville, TN. During the three days of excellence, the attendees gained scholarly insights in the Phi Theta Kappa Academy from dynamic speakers and with the opportunity to attend various educational forums.

Additionally, they engaged their College Project through the delivery of the Leadership Bridge course for the 12th Graders at the Elmore Stoutt High School and the Bregado Flax Educational Centre. This year the HLSCC chapter captured the Regional Title Awards for Distinguished Chapter, Top 10 Chapters and 5 Star Chapter.
