Holmes Community College.

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

A group of Holmes Community College students, some of whom had never before left Mississippi, traveled to Seattle to attend the international Phi Theta Kappa Convention. As a part of the four-day event, 3,500 top students from around the world participated in seminars focused on leadership, scholarship and community service. Phi Theta Kappa is an international honor society with a global reach. There are currently more than 1,250 chapters worldwide. This year alone, more than 110,000 of the world's most promising future leaders were inducted into the exclusive society that recognizes students for being outstanding students and leaders. Holmes Community College students swept almost every category at this year's awards banquet. Most notably, the college's Goodman Kappa Alpha Chapter earned the highest honor, being named 2011 Most Distinguished Chapter.
