Cerro Coso English Professor Dr. Christine Swiridoff was named the Distinguished Chapter Advisor for the Phi Theta Kappa Nevada/California region.

Nominated for the award by PTK chapter officers, the award was presented at the PTK Nevada/California Regional Conference in Burlingame, CA, in March.

“Dr. Swiridoff has made all of our PTK achievements possible,” said Chapter Officer Kayla Voigt. “She is hardworking, successful, and a true academic role model.”

Swiridoff started the Beta Kappa Chi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa at Cerro Coso and has served as faculty advisor for eleven years. “She has worked tirelessly to see us succeed in all we do as Phi Theta Kappans,” said Voigt.

Advisors are recognized for significant contributions to the growth of individual members, service as the chapter’s advocate on campus, and encouraging the chapter to be involved on the local, regional, and/or international levels of the organization.

Dr. Swiridoff received the Distinguished Chapter Advisor Award for all of the Nevada/California region. “Your hard work and service do not go unnoticed. We owe so much to you! Congratulations, Dr. Swiridoff,” concluded Voigt on behalf of the Chapter.
