Students of a Jones County Junior College Academic Honor Society are proving they have more to offer than just high grade point averages.

The Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society at JCJC brought several awards back to campus for their projects and members.

In March, the nine member chapter received the Distinguished Chapter Award for their project "The Tassel's Worth the Hassle", and "College for the Day" for Jones County's first graders.

The team also walked away with the Distinguished Chapter Officer Team, and Distinguished College Project Hallmark Award during the Hallmark Awards program last weekend. Chapter president, Gwen Matuszewski, who won the Most Distinguished Officer Award in March, says being involved with the chapter teaches each of the members lessons beyond the classroom.

"I can't describe how happy it makes us, because we have put so much effort and heart into it, and because we've grown closer because of it. It has taught us so many lessons that we can't learn in the classroom," said Matuszewski.

The chapter received the Top 100 Chapter Hallmark Award. This recognizes them for their overall work and accomplishments.
