DONALDSON – Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society of two-year colleges, inducted 23 new members from Ancilla College for the spring semester in a formal ceremony Sunday, March 13, at Ancilla’s campus.
Among those inducted to Ancilla’s Beta Beta Beta chapter Sunday, March 13, are: Daitriona Bonds of Plymouth, Kaeley Geschke of Middlebury, Kathryn Gorr of Bourbon, Calvin Hopple of Plymouth, Heather Jaki of Donaldson, Cayla Jolly of Plymouth, Alexandria Maloney of Donaldson, Briana Noodwang of Plymouth, Emily Rogers of Plymouth and Adam VanMeter of Culver.
“These students are to be commended for their exemplary academic accomplishments,” said Cynthia Cawthon, who serves as the chapter’s co-advisor alongside fellow faculty member Jodi Bowers. “They must attain a cumulative 3.5 grade point average to be invited to join Phi Theta Kappa. As commuter students maintaining hectic schedules, this is not a simple feat.”
Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 2 million members and 1,200 chapters located in all 50 of the United States, U.S. territories, British Virgin Islands, Canada, Germany, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, and Palau.
To be eligible for membership a student must complete a minimum of twelve hours of associate degree course work and earn a grade point average of 3.5 or higher. Students must maintain a high academic standing throughout their enrollment in the two-year college, generally a 3.25 GPA.
