100 New Students Inducted into Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society

In a virtual ceremony held on Friday, May 6, 2022, the Phi Delta Chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society welcomed 100 new members to its ranks.

Founded in 1918, Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) recognizes the academic achievement of community college students and provides members with the opportunity for personal, academic, and professional growth through leadership and service. Throughout the school year, PTK members participate in a number of activities and fundraisers, including the Winterfest Raffle, Pizza Party Raffle, and PTK Pride Social Event, enabling them to donate funds to the Student Emergency Loan Fund, and the campus food pantry.

“Along the way, you have faced some challenges, but whatever they were, you found solutions to them and put yourself in a class of your own,” commented MWCC President James Vander Hooven as he congratulated inductees. “You have distinguished yourselves as excellent learners. I am truly proud of the effort you have put in to earn this recognition and join this incredible honor society.”
