Dr. Bennie Lambert, the vice president of student development at Lone Star College-North Harris recently received the Phi Theta Kappa Distinguished College Administrator Award.
“This award is a great honor,” said Dr. Lambert. “I'm just fortunate to be a part of a great community college that directly supports, participates, and recognizes the importance of the premier national college honor organization for all high achieving students in America—Phi Theta Kappa. They are very bright students, yet incredibly service oriented. Our chapter gives back to others at our college and community, and I am very proud of them.”
Founded in 1918, Phi Theta Kappa is the oldest, largest, and most prestigious honor society serving two-year colleges around the world. Phi Theta Kappa recognizes and rewards high achieving students and provides scholarships for continued studies as well as opportunities to develop such critical leadership skills as problem solving, project planning, team building, effective communication and conflict resolution.
Membership is based on superior academic achievement and is conferred only by invitation of a local chapter.
The Distinguished College Administrator Awards is a part of the Phi Theta Kappa Hallmark Awards Program, and are given to community college vice presidents, deans, or leaders other than college presidents/CEOs serving a community college in an administrative capacity.
The Hallmark Awards, based on competitively-judged applications, recognize individuals, chapters and regions for excellence in the Society's Hallmarks of Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Fellowship as exemplified through Honors in Action activities.
“Dr. Lambert is truly worthy of this award,” said LSC-North Harris Phi Theta Kappa advisor, Laura Dupree. “On numerous occasions, He has gone above and beyond to assist our chapter to make sure that our students are given the best opportunities possible.”
Dr. Lambert was recognized at the Phi Theta Kappa’s 97th Annual Convention in San Antonio, Texas in April.
In addition to Dr. Lambert’s honor, students, faculty and staff from the LSC-North Harris Phi Theta Kappa chapter received eight regional and seven international awards at the annual convention.
