Ivy Tech to host Phi Theta Kappa conference

Ivy Tech Community College’s student honor society, Phi Theta Kappa, will host the Indiana Region Spring Conference. School Spokesman Chris Schilling says that the local chapter of the honor society will welcome approximately 100 Phi Theta Kappa members from around the state on March 4-5.

Ivy Tech officials say the event will be held at the Clarion Hotel. Keynote speaker Jason Levasseur will feature his “Get Your Show on the Road” program, which Schilling says “provides a fun, informational, and inspirational message about finding your passion and transforming dreams into reality.”

Also speaking during the gathering’s first day will be Columbus Mayor Jim Lienhoop and Ivy Tech Community College Chancellor Chris Lowry, said Schilling.

The Spring Conference continues the following day with events at the Ivy Tech Columbus Campus. Schilling says that event for that day include workshops, regional officer elections, and service projects with Big Brothers/Big Sisters and Youth Camp. He adds that an awards banquet will be held that evening at the Clarion Hotel.

Ivy Tech officials are thanking Trine University and Sunrise Rotary for their generosity in sponsoring the Spring Conference.
