New members inducted into Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society


PTK Induction

Approximately, 80 guests gathered in the Wright Room of the Brown Center on Sunday afternoon to witness the induction of 27 new members into the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society at Cowley College.

Attendees consisted of family and friends of the inductees, as well as some faculty and administrators. Nancy Ayers, Phi Theta Kappa faculty advisor at the Mulvane Campus, welcomed the inductees and guests. Slade Griffiths, vice president of academic affairs at Cowley College was the keynote speaker. He spoke about the different “keys of life” and encouraged students to hold on to these keys and use them throughout their academic career and beyond.

Melinda Neal, faculty advisor at the Ark City campus, along with current Phi Theta Kappa officers, then conducted the induction ceremony and the new members were sworn in. Picture taking and a cake and punch reception followed.

“It was wonderful to see so many family and friends at the ceremony, sharing this great honor with the students,” Ayers commented. "Melinda and I are hoping that many of these new members will decide to get involved in our chapter activities and reap the full benefits of membership in this honor society."

All totaled, 61 students have joined the honor society so far this semester.  And it's not too late to accept the invitation to join this semester. Applications and fees will be accepted until April 1.
