Student members of the Beta Rho Omicron Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society Willis Jennings of Greenville, Valeria Headd of Greenville, Alyssa Yu of Greenville, Linda Jimson of Greenville, Andrea Adams of Greenville, and Christopher Jones of Leland recently hosted a blood drive on the college's Greenville campus.

Mississippi Blood Services (MBS) recognized Mississippi Delta Community College as the state's Community College of the Year during an annual event recently held in Jackson. MDCC has partnered with Mississippi Blood Services for the last decade by hosting at least three to four blood drives each semester. "We are proud that our campus communities takes a few minutes of their time throughout the semester to donate blood," says Dr. Edward Rice, vice president of student services. "A few minutes out of our daily schedule can mean a lifetime for patients, their families and friends."

The honor students hosting the recent blood drive in Greenville are members of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society. The purpose of Phi Theta Kappa is to recognize and encourage scholarship among two-year college students. To achieve this purpose, Phi Theta Kappa provides opportunity for the development of leadership and service, for an intellectual climate for exchange of ideas and ideals, for lively fellowship for scholars, and for stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence.
