Central Texas College (CTC) held an induction ceremony to recognize the spring 2018 semester inductees to the school’s Sigma Iota Chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. Nearly 60 local students took the oath, signed the induction form and received membership certificates. In addition, each inductee received a gold key pin and will have an honor society notation of membership on their diploma and on their transcripts. They will also have the privilege of wearing gold regalia during graduation to signify their Phi Theta Kappa membership.
Phi Theta Kappa recognizes academic success of students at two-year colleges and provides opportunities for individual growth and development through honors, leadership and service programming. It is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 2.5 million members and 1,275 chapters across the country and the world and is the official honor society of two-year colleges.
The Sigma Iota Chapter opened at CTC in 1968. Students are required to maintain at least a 3.5 grade point average and have completed at least 30 college credit hours at CTC. This spring semester, 166 CTC students across the globe were inducted into the honor society.
