The Blinn College-Bryan Campus Alpha Phi Lambda Chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Honor Society recently inducted 104 students during a ceremony in the Blinn College-Bryan Campus Student Center.

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.

“These students are dedicated scholars who reflect a passion for learning and a commitment to achieving their educational goals at Blinn and beyond,” Blinn-Bryan PTK Co-Advisor Melissa Meek said. “Involvement in PTK helps our students grow academically, think critically, and engage with their peers, which will benefit them as they continue their studies or embark on their careers.”

“Seeing all these new students inducted into PTK makes me so happy because the organization creates a nurturing and supportive environment that has changed my life,” said PTK president Sherihan Jaouhari, who is graduating this semester and transferring to Texas A&M University to pursue biomedical engineering. “As a member of PTK, you have many opportunities to get involved on campus, meet long-term friends, and connect with mentors. The experience is so valuable, and I know the lessons I’ve learned and the connections I’ve made have set me up to succeed at Texas A&M.”

In spring 2022, Blinn-Bryan’s honor society took home three top honors at PTK’s international conference, PTK Catalyst, and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Dr. Marcelo Bussiki was presented with the Distinguished College Administrator Award. The group also received six awards during PTK’s Texas regional conference.

Registration is open for Blinn’s winter minimester and spring 2023 courses. For enrollment or financial aid information, visit
