Phi Theta Kappa, an international honor society for two-year colleges, is having their semi-annual induction ceremony on Feb. 27 at 4:30 p.m.
Vikas Matta, PTK’s vice president of service, said students with over 12 hours of coursework and at least a 3.5 GPA are invited to join PTK.
Upsilon Gamma, MCC’s chapter of PTK, holds an induction ceremony every semester, said Matta.
Matta said all new members are invited to the induction ceremony for recognition and can bring family and friends.
“Last semester, 62 students attended the ceremony in business attire and were recognized in front of an audience of family and friends,” said Matta.
Matta said Joseph Pascal, director of the information resource center, was chosen by Upsilon Gamma to be an honorary member of this semester’s ceremony.
“An honorary member is an individual of high character that strongly supports the chapter,” Matta said. “Mr. Pascal hosted a class for study habits during last semester’s C4 week. The purpose of C4 week is to help students dedicate their time to graduating.”
Matta said Charlotte Quigley, the advisor of Upsilon Gamma, has been extremely committed to the betterment of campus.
PTK offers students benefits, including great opportunities for scholarships, he said; they’re always presented for members to apply for.
