PTK “Trashathon” recognized by Keep Nebraska Beautiful
Alpha Beta Theta, North Platte Community College’s chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, is the recipient of a Certificate of Excellence from Keep Nebraska Beautiful.
PTK advisor Dr. Glynn Wolar and former PTK president Abel Silva accepted the certificate Thursday night at the Younes Conference Center South in Kearney.
The award was bestowed in honor of the chapter’s “Trashathon,” a community litter cleanup that PTK conducts twice per year.
Representatives from Keep North Platte and Lincoln County Beautiful nominated PTK for the award in the Great American Cleanup category, and the chapter won third place.
