NEMCC students initiated into International Honor Society

One hundred and twenty-two Northeast Community College students were eligible to be initiated into the college’s Iota Zeta chapter of Phi Theta Kappa for the spring 2005 semester.

Among those initiated in ceremonies on March 10 were Olivia Steele, Hickory Flat; Lauren Cooper, Potts Camp.

PTK seeks to foster the development of leadership and service, to provide an intellectual climate for the exchange of ideas, and to encourage the establishment of scholarships for advanced education. Approximately 48,000 new members are initiated each year. Recognized by the American Association of Community Colleges, Phi Theta Kappa is the official honor society of two-year colleges.

Northeast’s Iota Zeta chapter is a “Five Star” chapter, the highest rating given any chapter, and has been recognized as an exemplary model. It is open to students enrolled full-time who maintain a 3.5 grade point average on a 4.0 scale.
