Around 60 new members were inducted into the Iota Alpha chapter of Phi Theta Kappa during a recent ceremony. The Iota Alpha Chapter is the Trinity Valley Community College branch of Phi Theta Kappa.

The members of Iota Alpha recently welcomed 60 new members into their ranks.

The Trinity Valley Community College chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society inducted the additional members during a ceremony last week at the college.

The Iota Alpha chapter is comprised of outstanding students at TVCC’s four campuses. TVCC students are eligible to join Iota Alpha if they have earned at least 12 semester hours of transferrable credit at TVCC with an overall grade point average of 3.5 or higher.

The purpose of Phi Theta Kappa is to recognize and encourage scholarship among two-year college students. The organization provides opportunities for leadership and service development. The group also provides members with an intellectual climate for fellowship and discussions on pertinent topics.

The organization developed in Missouri in 1910. Today Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education, with more than 2 million members and chapters located in all 50 states as well as several other countries.
