The Blinn College District recently inducted 84 students into the Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), Psi Beta, and Sigma Kappa Delta honor societies during a ceremony in the Blinn-Bryan Student Center. The organizations reflect students from the Blinn College-Bryan and RELLIS campuses.

PTK is the premier honor society recognizing the academic achievements of students at associate degree-granting colleges. To be inducted, students must have at least a 3.5 grade point average with a minimum of 12 transferrable hours. The society is comprised of more than 3.8 million members, with almost 1,300 chapters in 11 countries.

“We are immensely proud of these students who reflect a commitment to accomplishing their educational goals at Blinn and beyond,” Blinn-Bryan PTK Co-Advisor Rachel Valentine said. “Involvement in PTK provides our students with mentorship, leadership, and research opportunities that will benefit them as they continue their studies or embark on rewarding careers.”
