Dr. Michael Stokes, Cleveland State Community College Vice President of Student Affairs, has been recognized by the National Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society as a Distinguished College Administrator for 2020. He will be honored at the Society’s annual convention April 2-4 in Dallas.

 

The Distinguished College Administrator Awards are presented to college vice presidents, deans, or directors serving at post-secondary institutions who have shown strong support of student success on their campus by recognizing academic achievement, leadership, and service among high-achieving students.

 

 

“I am honored to be recognized by Phi Theta Kappa as a Distinguished College Administrator,” said Dr. Stokes. “As the official Honors Society for two-year colleges, PTK provides opportunities for students to grow as scholars and leaders.  Our Omega Omicron chapter of PTK at Cleveland State has a long history of achievement, and has consistently been recognized as an outstanding chapter across the state and nation.  Our PTK students do great things for our campus and community, and I'm proud to support those students and their advisors.”

Recipients were nominated for the award by the students on their campus. 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 3.5 million members and nearly 1,300 chapters in 11 nations, with approximately 240,000 active members in the nation’s colleges.
