Phi Theta Kappa honor society’s Blinn-Bryan chapter inducts 73 students
To be eligible, students must carry at least a 3.5 grade-point average
March 3, 2017
The Blinn College-Bryan Campus chapter of Phi Theta Kappa national honor society recently inducted 73 students during a brief ceremony at the campus Student Center.
Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) is recognized as the official honor society for two-year colleges by the American Association of Community Colleges. Founded in 1918, PTK promotes scholarship, leadership service and fellowship among its members. To be accepted into the program, students must carry at least a 3.5 grade point average (GPA) with at least 12 transferable hours.
“This is an excellent organization with programs to enhance students’ ability to conduct research, think critically, and become active members in their community,” said Drew Denman, PTK Advisor. “I have seen PTK transform lives. We have had members who weren’t sure about their educational paths who have gone on to earn graduate and doctoral degrees. PTK is a great representation of the Blinn College name, which we have taken all over the nation with students who have held regional offices and campaigned for national office.”
PTK recently hosted a servant leadership workshop at the 2016 Texas Leadership Conference at East Texas Baptist University, coordinated a student campus carry discussion forum last month, and has promoted the importance of earning an associate degree before transferring to a four-year university at Blinn’s new student orientations.
