Co-Lin Phi Theta Kappa members receive scholarships

Five Co-Lin students were recently awarded scholarships for the 2018-2019 academic year by Phi Theta Kappa (PTK).

Miracle Lane of Woodville was selected as a 2018 PTK Trustmark Workforce Development Scholar. This scholarship is designed to assist active PTK members in navigating the transition from college to the workforce, and scholarship recipients may use their scholarship to pay for certification exams, tools, or equipment needed for entry into the workforce. Lane is a member of the Alpha Alpha Zeta Chapter of PTK on the college’s Natchez Campus.

Anna Brooke Davis of Smithdale, Warnesia Gaines of Natchez, Bethany Langley of Prentiss and Shannon McRaney of Collins each received a Cengage Unlimited Subscription. PTK and Cengage have partnered to provide 1,000 PTK members with access to Cengage Unlimited, a subscription to Cengage’s learning materials, for the fall semester. The subscription provides one-of-a-kind access to digital learning platforms, eBooks, online homework and study tools, in addition to affordable textbook rentals.
