New members of Phi Theta Kappa were inducted into the Beta Omicron (Rolla) chapter during the annual Fall Induction Ceremony held at East Central College’s location at the Rolla Technical Center. Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) is the international honor society for two-year colleges. As a member of PTK, students will pursue the society’s hallmarks of Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Fellowship.
“I’m proud of our students for maintaining the needed 3.4 grade point average in one semester to be invited into Phi Theta Kappa,” explains PTK Advisor Elizabeth Winters-Rozema. “After being inducted, students must maintain a 3.2 GPA.”
Valerie Freppon of Rolla and Gabrielle Campbell of Steelville are the newest members of the chapter.
“As a PTK alumni myself it is wonderful to see these students become part of a wonderful organization,” said ECC president Dr. Jon Bauer. “It is always exciting to see our students’ hard work pay off.”
The keynote speaker for the induction ceremony was Kevin Dixon, a PTK alum and the PTK advisor for the Chi Delta chapter at the Union campus of East Central College.
Membership is open to students pursuing a degree or certificate, no matter the major.
