Reading, PA –On Friday, November 9th, Phi Theta Kappa’s Reading Area Community College Chapter inducted fifty new members.
Family, friends, faculty, and staff all watched with pride as twenty-four young men and women inductees in attendance, who have fulfilled all requirements for membership, were selected because they have chosen scholarship, leadership, service, and fellowship as their hallmarks.
Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 1.3 million members and 1,100 chapters located in fifty United States, U.S Territories, Canada, Germany, and Japan. In 1929, the American Association of Community Colleges recognized Phi Theta Kappa as the official honor society for two-year colleges.
The RACC chapter also provides members with many opportunities for scholarship, leadership, service and fellowship as an active club on campus. Membership can be beneficial in terms of a variety of scholarships, not only at RACC, but at future four-year colleges as well. Currently enrolled students are invited to join when they have completed at least twelve hours of associate degree coursework at RACC with a grade-point average of 3.6 or higher.
