On Thursday, April 24, 2014, St. Cloud Technical & Community College (SCTCC) inducted 111 new members into Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), the official honor society for community colleges.
Membership in PTK is based on academic achievement, demonstrated leadership, community involvement, and fellowship. The minimum grade point average to be eligible for induction into PTK is 3.5.
“One of the main values of PTK is service,” said Kerby Plante, PTK advisor. “The current PTK members have contributed over 1,000 hours of community service during this last academic year while also maintaining an average GPA of 3.77. Many of these members also have families and work over 20 hours per week. The level of dedication and the caliber of person who is a PTK member is evident by the results shown in their community as well as their academic achievement.”
SCTCC has participated in PTK since 2006.
