From April 24 to April 26, Palomar Students are heading to Orlando to compete in a national conference.
“NerdNation is the International PTK annual conference”, said co-advisor of the school’s Phi Theta Kappa chapter, Katie Townsend-Merino. “It is not just a fun event, but offers many learning opportunities.”
Co-Advisor Katy French said that their chapter has applied for three hallmark awards which are extremely competitive. They applied for the Honors in Action Hallmark award, the College Project award, and the Most Distinguished Officer Award.
Also, there will be a vast variety of speakers ranging from Dr. Robert Ballad, the oceanographer who discovered the ‘Titanic’ to Justin Jones-Fosu who advocates diversity in everyday life.
For three days, students from all over the country that are involved with Phi Theta Kappa will attend educational sessions, networking opportunities, award ceremonies, and much more.
