Each year since she graduated from Quinsigamond Community College, Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) alumna Jacqui Viar has given back to her alma mater by knitting and crocheting hats for QCC students. The 2017 accounting graduate came to QCC after transferring from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and was an active member of the PTK Alpha Zeta Theta Honor Society.

Earlier this month she stopped by the PTK office to drop off a bagful of hats to warm the hearts and heads of QCC students in need during the cold weather months.

“Jacqui was the PTK recording secretary from 2016-2017 and was always there to help out. Even today, she still thinks of how she can help our students,” PTK Advisor Bonnie Coleman said, adding, “The beautiful hats she made were distributed in the Food Pantry and Resource Center and many students left happy and a little bit warmer this winter season.”
