The Iowa Central Community College Lamba Kappa Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa inducted 43 new members into the honor society on Wednesday (3/11) night.
Dave Grosland, Iowa Central Vice President of Instruction, opened the ceremony with a welcome to all inductees, family, and friends and congratulated the inductees on their dedication and hard work that leads to their academic successes. Phi Theta Kappa advisor, Samantha McClain, shared information on the history and mission of Phi Theta Kappa and then challenged the inductees, “Get involved during the remaining months of the semester and next year for returning students. Help make a difference, whether that be in your community, in your classroom, or your daily lives.”
After the inductees recited the Phi Theta Kappa Induction Pledge, the ceremony closed with a reception for all attendees.
Phi Theta Kappa is the official honor society for community colleges and each year, approximately 100,000 students are admitted. Phi Theta Kappa's mission is twofold, to recognize and encourage academic achievement (12 credit hours of college level coursework and a 3.5 GPA) and to provide opportunities for individual growth and development through participation in leadership, service and fellowship programming.
The following students were inducted during Wednesday night's ceremony:
