Students Inducted into Honor Society

February 8, 2017

Eighteen students at Northern Maine Community College have been inducted into the campus’ chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society for students at two-year colleges.

To be invited to join Phi Theta Kappa, a student must achieve a 3.5 or greater cumulative grade point average while being enrolled in one of the College’s 37 academic programs.  To maintain membership, the student’s cumulative grade point average cannot fall below a 3.25.  Members gain leadership skills through campus and community projects in addition to recognition throughout the year and at graduation.

The following students were inducted into the honor society for the spring semester class:

“The development of soft skills, leadership and teamwork that can be gained from PTK is invaluable and will be important throughout your professional and personal life. I challenge you to continue your academic excellence and make the most of all  the opportunities available to you at NMCC.”

Phi Theta Kappa gets involved with community service projects that either call for volunteering their time or for raising money in support of worthy causes.  Students have the opportunity to gain personal fulfillment through this service, while also building skills that will follow them into the workforce.
