The Blinn College-Bryan Campus chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa national honor society recently inducted 136 students during a virtual ceremony on Monday, April 19.

Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) is recognized as the official honor society for two-year colleges by the American Association of Community Colleges. Founded in 1918, PTK promotes scholarship, leadership, service, and fellowship among its members. To be accepted, students must carry at least a 3.5 grade point average (GPA) with at least 12 transferable hours.

“These students reflect a commitment to academic achievement and a dedication to success,” Blinn-Bryan PTK Co-Advisor Emily Erdmann said. “Involvement in PTK enhances our students’ abilities to conduct research, think critically, and become active members in their community, which are attributes that benefit them as they embark on careers or continue their studies.”
