- Written by Jeffry Tupa
A Lone Star College-Kingwood student was named a Phi Theta Kappa 2014 Distinguished Chapter Officer. William Howell will be presented with the honor at the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Societys Hallmark Awards Gala April 24-26 in Orlando, Fla. Distinguished Chapter Officers were nominated by their chapters through the Hallmark Awards application process and were chosen based on a students demonstration of leadership, promotion of Honors in Action, other engagement in the Society and enthusiasm for the Hallmarks of the Society. Howell was selected by a panel of judges from more than 450 nominees internationally. Howell is presently studying mechanical engineering and is completing his second year at LSC-Kingwood. He graduated from Kingwood Park High School and took a year off to serve in the AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps, completing more than 1,700 hours of community service across the southwestern U.S. before starting college. Howell currently serves as Chapter President of Alpha Lambda Xi, LSC-Kingwoods chapter of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. Howell recently returned from representing Uruguay at the 2014 National Model United Nations convention in New York as a member of a Lone Star College delegation. He plans to attend The University of Texas at Austin, MIT or Stanford University.
