Willenberg, Thomas Recognized by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society

Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society (PTK) will recognize 28 college presidents, including University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton’s (UACCM) Chancellor Lisa Willenberg, with the Paragon Awards for New Presidents during PTK Catalyst 2023, the Society’s annual convention in Columbus, Ohio, April 20-22. 

To be eligible for this award, college presidents and CEOs are new in their role having served less than 3 years. Recipients are nominated by students on their campus and are only eligible to receive the award once. The awardees were selected from among 406 college leaders across the nation.

The award recognizes college presidents who have shown support of student success initiatives leading to stronger pathways to completion, transfer, and employment. They have taken an active interest in supporting high-achieving students and developing student leaders on campus.

“These college presidents have students-first leadership styles and made it a priority to support student success both inside and outside the classroom,” says Phi Theta Kappa President and CEO Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner, “This award is special because it comes directly from the students, and it is evidence of the gratitude they feel for the support for them and students like them.”

PTK will also recognize 30 college administrators, including UACCM’s Dean of General Education, Marilyn Thomas, with Distinguished College Administrator Awards during PTK Catalyst 2023.

The Distinguished College Administrator Award recognizes college administrators working directly with student leaders to solve problems on campus and in their communities. They have taken an active interest in supporting high-achieving students and developing student leaders.

“These college administrators are beloved on campus—they know students by name and by circumstance,” says Phi Theta Kappa President and CEO Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner. “This award is special because it comes directly from the students, and it is evidence of the gratitude they feel for the support for them and students like them.”

Phi Theta Kappa is the premier honor society recognizing the academic achievement of students at associate degree-granting colleges and helping them to grow as scholars and leaders. The Society is made up of more than 3.8 million members and nearly 1,300 chapters in 11 countries, with approximately 240,000 active members in the nation’s colleges. Learn more at www.ptk.org.
