FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

UDC-CC STUDENTS INDUCTED INTO PHI THETA KAPPA HONOR SOCIETY

Washington, DC -On Monday, October 22, 2012 the University of the District of Columbia Community College inducted 55 new members into the Beta Sigma Upsilon Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK). Phi Theta Kappa is the official international honor society for community colleges. A keynote address was delivered by Ms. Mia Ramos, Assistant Director of Programs at Achieving the Dream and former Phi Theta Kappa International Officer.  Ms. Ramos shared how PTK has helped her overcome challenges and shaped who she is today.

The purpose of PTK is to recognize and encourage scholarship among two-year college students. Each PTK inductee exemplifies the four hallmarks essential to receive this honor: scholarship, leadership, fellowship and service. To be eligible for Phi Theta Kappa, students must earn a grade point average (GPA) of 3.5 and have completed at least 12 credit hours of college course work. To remain a member of PTK, students must maintain 3.0 GPA. UDC-CC's chapter now has 294 members, representing approximately 10% of the UDC-CC student enrollment.
