College named to prestigious Phi Theta Kappa Transfer Honor Roll

Lees-McRae was recently named to the Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Transfer Honor Roll, “which recognizes excellence in the development of transfer pathways,” according the PTK Honor Society.

“Colleges were selected based on their Transfer Friendliness Rating, which is determined by the transfer profile they create in PTK Connect, an online tool that helps students find their best-fit colleges, career pathways, and more,” the PTK Honor Society added.

Only the top 25 percent of colleges—122 institutions nationwide—who earned the highest ratings were named to the honor roll.

Vice President for Enrollment Management Kevin Phillips shared his excitement for being named to the honor roll.

“With our innovative academic programs and strong commitment to cross-disciplinary studies and student success, Lees-McRae College is extremely proud to receive this distinguished honor,” he said.

The PTK Honor Society supports and offers resources to “high-achieving college students [who wish to] reach their full potential. We don’t just recognize academic success; we give them opportunities to develop professional and leadership skills,” according to the PTK Honor Society website. The honor society has 3.5 million members across the world.

Phillips also added that, “Lees-McRae will continue to recognize and support PTK students and provide them with transfer opportunities and scholarships to complete their undergraduate studies in beautiful Banner Elk, North Carolina.”

Lees-McRae awards a $2,000 annual scholarship to PTK members interested in pursuing a degree at our Banner Elk campus who possess an overall 3.5 GPA or higher.
