Phi Theta Kappa

Western is proud to partner with Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), an honors society, for our local students. PTK recognizes the academic achievement of college students and provides opportunities for its members to grow as scholars and leaders. 

Community college instructors know your name and your circumstances... I thrived at a community college, and CCsmart is our way of telling people the stigma around community college is wrong. It is the exact opposite—people are smart to choose them, and here are the reasons why.-— PTK’s 2022 International Student President, Tala Alahmar


Western Wyoming Community College (Western) is partnering with in response to an idea championed by a group of PTK students who wanted to share the success and pride they had for being community college students and encourage others to take a deeper look at all the opportunities community colleges provide, particularly to first-generation college students and underserved populations. Our students can save on average $34,000 by coming to Western their first two years. 

Right now, these colleges are underutilized, and we have to fix that. CCsmart is about creating awareness of what these colleges have to offer, and it is also about fixing the short supply of skilled and trained workers needed for a strong U.S. economy.-— Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner, CCsmart/Phi Theta Kappa’s CEO and President
