Dozens of students were welcomed into the Iota Mu Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa on Monday evening. The induction ceremony was held at the Brownstone Center for the Arts with family members and other guests in the audience.
Phi Theta Kappa is known as the foremost honor society for two-year colleges with over 1,300 chapters worldwide. This evening was the Iota Mu Chapter’s 64th induction ceremony. The chapter covers both the Hancock County and Poplarville campuses.
Students elected for membership are considered academically successful having completed at least 12 credit hours of non-remedial courses with a minimum cumulative 3.4 GPA.
Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Fellowship are the four hallmarks of PTK. The current officers briefly shared how those hallmarks have played out for them as members of PTK.
Before the students took the PTK oath, PRCC President Dr. Adam Breerwood addressed those gathered.
“You are unlocking the door to tremendous opportunities tonight,” he said. “Take advantage of what we have to offer here at PRCC including a strong educational foundation. Embrace the challenges faced as you move on to big and better things.”
