Sixty-Four Students Inducted into PTK & KBD Honor Societies

Congratulations to the sixty-four students who were recently inducted into the Phi Theta Kappa and Kappa Beta Delta Honor Societies. To be eligible for induction, students must have a 3.5 grade point average after completing at least eighteen credit hours of college coursework. The guest speaker for the evening’s induction ceremony, Senator Cliff Hite, was also inducted as an honorary member to both honor societies.

Phi Theta Kappa was established in 1918 to encourage academic achievement for two-year college students. Its mission is to provide opportunities for individual growth and development through honors, leadership and service programming. Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 1.3 million members.

Kappa Beta Delta was established in 1997 as a specialty honor society for two-year college students in business programs. Its purpose is to recognize student scholarship and accomplishments, as well as encourage personal and professional improvement and service to others.
