SCC Holds Annual PTK Induction Ceremony
The Alpha Lambda Epsilon Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society held their fall induction ceremony on October 22, 2014. Phi Theta Kappa is the International Honor Society of the two-year college and students with a high 3.5 or better grade point average in at least 12 transfer hours are invited for membership. These are the top 10% of all students in a two-year college.
Phi Theta Kappa was established in 1918 to honor these students and their academic achievements and is the oldest, largest and most prestigious honor society serving the two-year college in the world. Invited students may still join this fall semester until December 5. Phi Theta Kappa recognizes and rewards high-achieving students and provides opportunities to develop leadership skills.
Shawnee Community College's Alpha Lambda Epsilon Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society inducted 21 new members during the induction ceremony on October 22,2014. Of these members, 3 are also students of Vienna High School. These students have achieved a high college GPA of 3.5 or better in at least 12 transfer hours in their college courses while maintaining high scores in their high school courses. Over the years, Shawnee Community College has inducted many quality high school students enrolled in college courses from most of our area high schools.
