Turkey trot participants
The Halifax Community College (HCC) Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) International Honor Society Alpha Eta Phi Chapter hosted the second annual Turkey Trot, a campus-wide community service project on Nov. 20. Teams of faculty, staff and students purchased 10-15 pound frozen turkeys and created four unique ways to transport the turkeys around a marked course on the front green. Each member carried the turkey one leg of the relay race. The turkeys that were donated will feed eight families during the Thanksgiving holiday. Turkeys were donated to the Rural Health Department immediately following the event. Congratulations to the winners of the 2014 Turkey Trot:

1st Place: PRIDE (52 seconds)
2nd Place: Student Support Services (1 minute and 03 seconds)
3rd Place: Student Success Center (1 minute and 16 seconds)
