Diel-Hunt named Distinguished Administrator by Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society

February 10, 2020

Heartland Community College Vice President of Enrollment and Student Services Sarah Diel-Hunt has been honored by the national Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.

Dr. Diel-Hunt is one of only 26 college administrators recognized with a 2020 Distinguished College Administrator Award.

The Distinguished College Administrator Awards are presented by Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) to college vice presidents, deans, or directors serving at post-secondary institutions who have shown strong support of student success on their campus by recognizing academic achievement, leadership, and service among high-achieving students. 

Recipients are nominated for the award by the students on their campus.

As V.P. of Enrollment and Student Support Services, Diel-Hunt directs enrollment service functions such as admissions, financial aid, testing and records as well as athletic and fitness operations, international student support, counseling, secondary education partnerships and student access.

“It is gratifying to see Sarah Diel-Hunt recognized by an organization such as Phi Theta Kappa,” said Heartland President Keith Cornille. “This honor reflects Sarah’s passion and commitment to Heartland students. Phi Theta Kappa is an organization that promotes the achievements of community college students throughout the nation. This recognition shines a light on the important role we all can play in helping students succeed.”

The Distinguished College Administrator Awards will be presented at the PTK Catalyst 2020 convention held this April in Dallas, Texas.

Phi Theta Kappa is the premier honor society recognizing the academic achievement of students at associate degree-granting colleges and helping them to grow as scholars and leaders. The Society is made up of more than 3.5 million members and nearly 1,300 chapters in 11 nations, with approximately 240,000 active members in the nation’s colleges. Learn more at
