Phi Theta Kappa chooses faculty scholars

Two Pima Community College employees were selected from among nearly 3,000 Phi Theta Kappa chapter advisers as 2013 faculty scholars.

The two chosen were Rob Carey, a science laboratory supervisor, and biology faculty member Steve Uyeda.

The two were selected through an application process based on knowledge of the 2012-13 Honors Study topic “The Culture of Competition” and demonstrated excellence in teaching or administration.

“We congratulate them for being selected to serve and for their willingness and desire to surpass the traditional duties of an adviser by contributing in this manner,” said Susan Edwards, Phi Theta Kappa’s dean of academic affairs and honors programs.

The faculty scholars attended the annual Faculty Scholar Conference at PTK’s Center for Excellence in Jackson, Miss., on Jan. 30-Feb. 3.

Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, headquartered in Jackson, is the largest honor society in higher education with 1,285 chapters on college campuses in all 50 states, plus many other countries.

More than 2.5 million students have been inducted since its founding in 1918.
