Central Texas College (CTC) held an induction ceremony to recognize the fall 2017 semester inductees to the school’s Sigma Iota Chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. Thirteen students took the oath, signed the induction form then received certificates signifying their 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. The American Association of Community Colleges recognizes Phi Theta Kappa as 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.

The newly inducted honor society members are James Arnold, Alliyah Jacobs, Chrea’ Jones, Marilynn Leger, Lee Marklund, Christopher Owens, Antwon Parker, Timothy Philpot, Catherine Ross, Terrajh Sinclair, Askia Whitaker, Dakota Widenor and Eric Williams.   

Each student received a gold key membership pin, a membership certificate and will have an honor society notation of membership on their diploma and on their transcripts. They also have the privilege of wearing gold regalia during graduation to signify their Phi Theta Kappa membership.
