SCC President to Receive Phi Theta Kappa Paragon Award

Sacramento City College’s very own Michael Gutierrez will receive the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society Paragon Award for New Presidents. The award is “given to new college presidents who have shown strong support of student success by recognizing academic achievement, leadership and service among high-achieving students at their campus.”

Presidents are nominated for the award by their campus’ Phi Theta Kappa chapter. Part of President Gutierrez’s nomination reads “President Gutierrez has made himself available to be the featured speaker at our induction ceremony and events on campus. He supported PTK in presenting to the LRCCD Board of Trustees and our SCC campus Senior Leadership Team and faculty to promote our five-star status and our chapter. He is working with our PIO and PTK chapter to develop an outreach and in-reach strategic plan to promote and advertise PTK. He has directly connected with PTK and participates in PTK activities such as he will be a featured speaker at Phi Theta Kappa’s Nevada/California Regional Conference in Spring 2019.”

More than 500 college presidents were eligible and President Gutierrez will be one of only 25 to bring home the award! #iAmSacCity
