[April 27, 2013]  At their final meeting for the academic year, on April 24, the Iota Chi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa presented Dr. Dennis Campbell with a check for $1,000 to install a recycling center at Creekside, Lincoln College's Outdoor Center for Environmental Education.

The recycling center will include bins for plastic, glass and aluminum cans.

PTK members have been helping at the Creekside site all year, cutting trails, installing cedar split-rail fences, moving rocks for the pond, assembling the greenhouse rafters, weeding and painting.

Hannah Singleton, chapter president, who initiated the project and presented the check to Campbell, said: "Iota Chi Chapter enjoyed their time working at Creekside, and we are thrilled to present these funds to Dr. Campbell to install a recycling center at Creekside to help promote the site's commitment to environmental awareness and preservation."

Lincoln College's PTK chapter has had several fundraisers over the year, including two trivia nights, silent auctions and 50-50 drawings to help raise the funds for the Creekside project. They also raised almost $1,700 for Special Olympics in Logan County.
