A recent Walters State graduate is one of only 26 students to have her writing chosen for publication in “Note Bene,” the literary journal of Phi Theta Kappa. PTK is the international honor society for community college students. 
Ayesha Kahn’s work, “Abandonment of the Elderly Parents: Bliss or Nuisance,” is a scientific article assessing the depleting bonds between parents and children. Kahn earned her associate degree in science in biology in May is now a junior biology major at East Tennessee State University. She is a Midway Honors Scholar and is also an Honors in Discipline Biology scholar. Kahn is from Pigeon Forge and plans to be a physician.
“Ayesha was an outstanding scholar while attending Walters State. I am proud that something she wrote while a student will now be read by an international audience. I look forward to seeing her future success,” said Dr. Tony Miksa, president of Walters State. 
“Note Bene” showcases the outstanding writing of PTK members. More than 550 submissions were received for the 2019 issue. The competition is judged by current and retired college faculty members from across the country.
