Clark College President Karin Edwards was recently named a Paragon President by the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. The award recognizes college presidents who have shown support of student success initiatives leading to stronger pathways to completion, transfer and employment. They have taken an active interest in supporting students, including high-achieving students and developing student leaders on campus.
“This award is especially meaningful to me because I was nominated by our students,” said Edwards. “Nomination and selection for this award is recognition that PTK and other students know they have my support.”
To be eligible for this award, college presidents and CEOs must have served in their role for less than three years. Recipients are nominated by students on their campus and are only eligible to receive the award once. The 20 recipients were selected from among 426 college presidents, chancellors, and CEOs eligible.
