College Regional Trustees Meet
The Alpha Lambda Epsilon chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa international honor society at Shawnee Community College inducted 20 new members in March.
During the induction ceremony, students took the Honor Society pledge, signed the official Chapter Members book, and celebrated academic achievements with fellow Phi Theta Kappa members, faculty and staff, friends, and family members.
Established by Missouri two-year college presidents in 1918, Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society serves to recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students and provide opportunities for individual growth and development through honors, leadership and service programming.
Today, Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 1.3 million members and 1,100 chapters located in 50 United States, U.S. territories, Canada, Germany, and Japan. In 1929, the American Association of Community Colleges recognized Phi Theta Kappa as the official honor society for two-year colleges.
