For the City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – The Wisconsin region of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Honor Society has selected Mid-State student, Emily Tauschek, Plover, as its new president.
In her role, Tauschek will work with the regional officer team and regional coordinator to plan events across the state and promote chapter engagement throughout the 2020–21 academic year.
“This title means a lot to me because I am leading the region in a way I never thought I could,” said Tauschek, who first set out to pursue a PTK regional officer position based on her experience as an executive board member.
Tauschek said she looks forward to leading the work to maintain Five Star status for Mid-State’s PTK chapter, Beta Chi Theta, while expanding that achievement to the region as a whole. She also looks forward to networking with other Kappans around the region as well as attending PTK’s international convention, Catalyst, and her sights are set on running for international president in the coming year.
“Her willingness to step up and get involved in our local chapter will undoubtedly serve our region well…,” added co-advisor and communications instructor, Jill Quinn.
Since its induction three years ago, Mid-State’s PTK chapter, Beta Chi Theta, has received numerous awards and recognition, including third most distinguished chapter in the state, Five Star Advisor status for co-advisers Jon Steele and Quinn and the Paragon Award for New Presidents, which was presented to Mid-State President Dr. Shelly Mondeik in April 2019
