Hill College inducts 35 new members in the Phi Theta Kappa honor society
The Hill College Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Nu Xi Chapter inducted 35 students into the chapter at the fall induction ceremony Nov. 14 at the Johnson County Campus in the Student Center.
The Nu Xi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa was chartered by Hill College on Nov. 17, 1964. Phi Theta Kappa is the international honorary scholarship society for community and technical colleges. The purposes of the society are to promote scholarship, develop character, and cultivate fellowship among the students of the junior colleges of the U.S.
To be invited to become a member of Phi Theta Kappa, a freshman must have 3.4 GPA; a sophomore must have a 3.2 GPA; the student must be working toward an associate degree, and have the approval of a faculty committee which appraises the qualifications, character and leadership qualities of the student. To remain a member of Phi Theta Kappa, a student must maintain a 3.0 GPA. PTK members have access to over $37 million in scholarship opportunities, and become a part of a network of nearly three million scholars on more than 1,285 campuses worldwide.
Xi Nu faculty advisors are Jennifer Corder, drama instructor, and Jim Williamson, psychology instructor.
