Afternoon of Academic Excellence (AOEA)
This was the chapter's 10 year anniversary of hosting this scholarly event. It is an event that honors every sophomore, junior and senior that is on the honor role in our local high schools. Maddie Parks and Mandi McIntosh spent months planning out the logistics, coping with unforeseen challenges, and working with the college and various high school coordinators. Mandi and Maddie recruited many chapter members to help collect over 3000 invitations to be sent out. They also made sure that over a dozen members would help during the event. The speaker, Viviana Alcazar, was a former PTK chapter president, graduate from Stanford University, and current PhD candidate at UC Berkeley.
