Advisors | Phi Theta Kappa

Deanna Murphy

Deanna Murphy - photoI was inducted as a Phi Theta Kappa member in 1998 and my life turned a corner. Prior to becoming involved, I was simply a busy working mom who was going to school. Becoming involved in Phi Theta Kappa added that extra special something in my academic career. I was encouraged to go beyond what I had done and try new things and have new experiences. I always look to those times with the very fondest of memories.

Phi Theta Kappa is based on four cornerstones: Fellowship, Leadership, Service and Scholarship. These cornerstones build a strong foundation that reaches beyond my academics into my professional and personal life and are very rewarding. The opportunities provided to me as a member and student have been tremendous.

It has been an honor to serve as an advisor for the past four years. As each year passes, I continue to be energized by the students that choose to become members but especially by those who take on the challenge of becoming active members and officers. I encourage each member to take a step forward and learn, make friends, serve your school and community as well as gain invaluable leadership skills.


Maria Rempfer

Maria Rempfer - photoMy name is Maria Rempfer, co-advisor with Deanna Murphy. I have been working at Victor Valley College for 14 years. I have a creative, artistic nature. I love collages and creating textile items with unusual and repurposed materials. I love to cook and share my passion for good food with others. I love being a part of the community, and Phi Theta Kappa allows me the opportunity to contribute my talents to a worthy group.

Since I have been involved with Phi Theta Kappa, I see the possibilities for the students who are a part of this Honor Society and how this group can benefit other students on campus. They carry many units, work full time jobs, and volunteer in the community. They inspire one to greatness. They exemplify, Fellowship, Leadership, Service and Scholarship.

I am very grateful that they have thought enough of me to be a Co-Advisor for the group. I look forward to many more years with them, changing lives, inspiring greatness, and helping them achieve their academic and personal goals.
