The Alpha Epsilon Sigma chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society inducted 73 students from MCTC at a ceremony held on Nov. 15.

PTK is the international honor society for two-year colleges and academic programs. Students with a minimum cumulative 3.3 GPA with 12 or more earned credits are eligible for the society.

Three of these new members are current editors or staff at CCN.

Troy Dvorak, a professor in the Psychology Department, and Francie Bubna-Walker, coordinator in Starting Point Tutoring Center, greeted the events guests and the MCTC Choir, directed by Dr. Elizabeth Pauly, performed the Phi Theta Kappa Anthem.

MCTC President Dr. Sharon Pierce and Vicky Knickerbocker, regional coordinator for PTK, praised the new inductees for their accomplishments and what it means to be a member of an honor society.

“I think Phi Theta Kappa students possess characteristics that should be cherished,” Knickerbocker said.
