College of the Mainland’s chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society has been named a Five Star Chapter for its service, scholastic excellence and involvement in the society on the local, regional and international levels.

“Achieving Five Star status requires a commitment of both time and effort, and it’s a huge honor to receive this ranking among Phi Theta Kappa chapters,” said Chris Allen, COM Sigma Delta faculty sponsor.
The highest designation a chapter of the national community college honor society can receive, Five Star recognizes chapters for their progress on the Five Star Development Plan. COM’s chapter, named Sigma Delta, has received this honor each year for more than a decade.

The chapter recently inducted 21 members at its spring ceremony. Members must meet requirements of a 3.5 GPA.

Each year, Sigma Delta coordinates projects to serve the campus and community and attends conferences on the local, state and national level, giving members the opportunity to learn public speaking and leadership skills.
