USC’s Alpha Eta chapter of the Pi Theta Epsilon national honor society for occupational therapy students and alumni received the 2013 President’s Award at the 2013 American Occupational Therapy Association/National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy® National Student Conclave in Jacksonville, Fla.

The President’s Award recognizes Pi Theta Epsilon chapters that organize and implement outstanding scholarly activities designed to increase knowledge of, develop professional skills for, and further contribute to the advancement of occupational therapy. USC’s PTE chapter was recognized for its annual Occupational Therapy Extravaganza event, which it has been hosting for six consecutive years. Trojan student Colin Lenington MA ’14 was in attendance to accept the award on behalf of the chapter.

“I am very proud of all of you [PTE members], and of our Division, for this honor,” said Associate Dean Florence Clark. “The Occupational Therapy Extravaganza is truly a wonderful annual showcase and I know it is the result of much passion, vision, teamwork, and dedication.”

Congrats and Fight On!
