Warren County Community College’s Alpha Upsilon Rho Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa recently inducted the college’s top students to its organization at a special ceremony on campus. These students earned the right to be in this exclusive society due to their grades and commitment to their educational pursuits.
Phi Theta Kappa International is the honor society for two-year colleges and boasts members from throughout the country. Membership is based upon academic achievement. Among the criteria for induction, students must be enrolled in accredited courses leading to an associate degree program and have a GPA of 3.5 or over. As a member of this organization, these students are eligible to apply for Phi Theta Kappa Transfer Scholarships offered by over 600 4-year colleges and universities located throughout the United States.
“These students truly embody the very best of what our community has to offer,” said Rose Lynch, WCCC Director of Student Activities and PTK Advisor. “Through their hard work, perseverance and determination, they have been able to reach amazing heights and have certainly made an important step in their academic careers with this achievement.”
In addition to honoring the induction ceremony, WCCC Professor, Lisa Troy, delivered a very well-received speech about the importance of giving back to one’s community through volunteerism and shared stories of her experiences regarding her participation in the Avon 39 Walk to End Breast Cancer.
