Phi Theta Kappa - Honors Student Fraternity
Kappa has recognized academic excellence in the two-year college since
1918 and has become the largest and the most prestigious honor society serving
two-year colleges around the world. Membership
is based primarily upon academic achievement. Invitation to membership for Shawnee students may be

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.
