Organization hosts induction ceremony for all new members
By Estefania Flores
The Phi Theta Kappa organization will host an induction ceremony 6-7 p.m. Nov. 3 to honor all new members of the society in the auditorium of McAllister Fine Arts Center.
Adviser Roger Stanley, chemistry and earth sciences professor, will host the event to recognize all new Phi Theta Kappa members who were inaugurated by the end of March 2016, the last induction date.
“Students will get a chance to celebrate this stepping stone with the administration team, officer team and regional officer team,” Stanley said. “It’s a time where we all come together to celebrate the new members.”
“There is a total of 150 current members in the program,” Stanley said. “It’s very fulfilling to watch students succeed after becoming a member of Phi Theta Kappa.”
Overall in the entire nation, there is a 91percent completion rate among college students who join the organization, as opposed to non-members, he said.
To be a part of this society, a student must achieve a minimum of a 3.5 GPA with 12 or more college-credit hours.
Speakers invited to the event include Dr. Robert Vela, president of this college; Carla Vinas-Yanez, regional vice-president of Phi Theta Kappa; and Jonas Arellano, regional president of Phi Theta Kappa.
Afterwards, the organization will host a reception in the lobby of McAllister.
Everyone is encouraged to attend, and admission is free
