Jackson at GCC earns five-star status
IRONWOOD – Gogebic Community College Director of Student Outreach and Engagement and Phi Theta Kappa Advisor, Dayle Jackson, recently earned special recognition from an international academic honor society.
Jackson was named a five-star advisor for Phi Theta Kappa’s (PTK), Alpha Rho Chi chapter at GCC.
PTK provides the Five-Star Advisor designation to chapter advisors who successfully complete distinct advisor training requirements developed by PTK to support chapter advisors in their work. To earn five-star status, advisors must complete a five-level curriculum that includes modules in communications, leadership, service learning, student success and building collaborative partnerships.
“The Five-Star Advisor curriculum is a remarkable tool for advisors to increase their knowledge base. The information learned will assist me in helping our members impact our campus and community through the four PTK pillars of scholarship, leadership, service and fellowship, said Jackson.”
Jackson’s achievement will be recognized at the honor society’s annual convention in April 2021.

1. complete at least 12 hours of work in courses leading to an Associate degree at Gogebic Community College;
2. cumulative GPA must be 3.5 or better;
