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-Bryan 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.”
