PTK to host second biannual Pie Your Professor event

05 October 2018

Pratt Community College Phi Theta Kappa students are hosting their second biannual Pie Your Professor event starting on Oct. 5. The fundraiser concludes on Oct. 19 at noon when four volunteers receive a pie in the face by PTK officers on the basketball courts by the Riney Student Conference Center. The fundraiser is to raise money for future service projects as well as the club’s annual spring trip to the PTK regional meeting.

This semester’s participants that have volunteered to receive a pie in the face so far are: Ken Kepley, Dr. Michael Fitzpatrick, Jason Ghumm, Frank Stahl, Jerry Thompson, Jenny Mueller, Ralph Williams, Sarah Jackson, Kip Chambers, Carol Ricke, Melvin Jenkins, and Trisha Jackson.

Each participant will have an assigned bucket located in the library. Students, faculty, staff, and community members are encouraged to put money in the respective person they would most like to see receive a pie in the face. PTK officers will smash a pie in the face for the winning participants in four different categories:
• Highest total overall
• Total closest to zero
• Highest total* – coach category
• Highest total* – faculty or staff/administrator category

If the highest overall is a coach, faculty, or administrator, the next highest will receive a pie in that category.
Coins count toward each participant’s total while paper money counts against each total. The buckets will be available for donations starting on Oct. 5 until Oct.19 when the professors will be pied.

Last spring, the club raised $80.00 and hope to raise $150.00 this year.
