Dr. Linda Stegall, Lone Star College-Kingwood president for the past eight years was recently honored with the Michael C. Bennett Lifetime Achievement Award from Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society.
The Michael C. Bennett award is presented to college presidents at two-year institutions who have been supportive of Phi Theta Kappa and are retiring from their careers. Dr. Stegall traveled to Philadelphia with her husband to accept the award on April 4, 2008 at the society's annual international convention.
Phi Theta Kappa is the official honor society for two year colleges. It is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 1.3 million members. The organization recognizes and encourages scholarship among two-year college students. Phi Theta Kappa's purpose is to provide opportunity for the development of leadership and service, an intellectual climate for exchange of ideas and ideals, lively fellowship for scholars, and stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence.
Debbie Esparza, academic advisor for Alpha Lambda Xi, the college's chapter, says, "Dr. Stegall has always been an enthusiastic supporter, exemplary leader, and distinguished visionary for Alpha Lambda Xi at Lone Star College-Kingwood. The chapter has not only grown but thrived under her guidance. The Michael C. Bennett Lifetime Achievement Award is a fitting tribute recognizing her commitment to higher education and the exemplary service and significant contribution that Dr. Stegall has made to Alpha Lambda Xi and Phi Theta Kappa."
