Recognizing the highest achieving students at Phillips Community College of the University of Arkansas (PCCUA), the Sigma Kappa chapter of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) inducted eleven new members in Helena. The induction ceremony was directed by PTK advisor Dr. Tarsha Smith.
Among new members from the Phillips County area are Kerri Bevel, Britney Box, Lakendra Collins-King, Kennis Ellis, Clifton Hansberry, Ebony Miller, Torian Nolan, Desteni Tinzie, Allie Warren, Jennifer Washington, and Jamiya Whitley.
The oldest chapter in Arkansas (est. 1967), Sigma Kappa recognizes academic achievement and promotes leadership and service. The inductees met the requirements of a minimum 3.5 GPA and at least 12 transferable college hours.
Established in 1918, Phi Theta Kappa is the oldest and most prestigious honor society serving two-year colleges around the world. In 1929, the American Association of Community Colleges recognized Phi Theta Kappa as the official honor society for two-year colleges.
The Society serves to recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students and provide opportunities for individual growth and development through honors, leadership and service programming. Students must rank in the top 20% of the class to be invited to membership in Phi Theta Kappa and must maintain high academic standing during their enrollment in the two-year college.
