Ami-Lee Wilder was a member of the Theta Chi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa at Pensacola State College. She was very active and involved in the chapter, but was killed in a tragic car accident before she had a chance to graduate. Her parents set up a scholarship in her honor to help students (especially PTK students) to complete their education at Pensacola State. This scholarship fund receives some matching funds from the State of Florida, and there is an annual golf tournament which raises funds for the scholarship as well.

This scholarship is open to all Pensacola State College Students. However, preference is given to Phi Theta Kappa members. Several $1000 scholarships are awarded Fall, Spring, & Summer terms. The scholarship can be used towards tuition, fees, & books.

Congratulations to our recipients of the Spring 2015 scholarships!
