A team of excited Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) students and alumni paddled their way to a fun-filled day at the third Worcester Dragon Boat Festival, held on September 21.

Participants include PTK alumni: Kayla Paterson, Jason Butler, Kimberly May, Ato Fynn, James Mbugua, Robin Wood, Erika Lacrosse, Rodrigo Rivas, Jose Mesmar, Karen Oberg, Kennedy Udechukwu and current students: Jorgo Gushi, Diana Mohammed Basher, Shaymaa Majeed, Alexander Paulino, Lucy Ortiz, Stephanie McGinnis, Ilina Ivanova, Jose Carlos Simoes, Devon Arthur, and Israa Majeed.  

QCC President Dr. Luis Pedraja was on-hand to show his support for the students, praising them for their commitment to the QCC community.

“Every little bit helps to get the word out about our college. These types of community events help let people know what we are all about - community,” said Dr. Pedraja.

The Wyverns battled hard in their two races, sadly coming up short of a spot in the finals. While no trophy was forthcoming for the team, the day brought out great Wyvern camaraderie for alumni and students alike.
