Phi Theta Kappa holds induction ceremony

 

PTK Inductees


On Sunday, April 12, Phi Theta Kappa had its annual induction ceremony, officially welcoming 16 new members to the nationally recognized honors organization. Seventy-nine people attended this ceremony that was conducted in the Earle N. Wright Community Room by officers Amanda Krook, Kathryn McIntosh, Tori Anstine, Alecia Henson and Kandice Wright and advisors Deborah Layton, Scott Layton and Melinda Neal.

 

Guest speaker Keri Thompson, Kansas Region President and student at Labette Community College, presented the members with an informative and inspirational speech on the organization’s pillars: Leadership, Scholarship, Fellowship and Service.

 

Newly added this year as a part of the occasion was a celebration for the Kansas All-Academic Team. A number of students applied for this honor in the fall, and through a series of essays demonstrating their leadership and volunteerism, two were selected from the Mulvane campus: Kathryn McIntosh and Nhat Nguyen, and two were selected from Ark City: Kayla Crane and Madison McDowell to represent Cowley College at the state level.

 

The students attended a luncheon in Topeka in February honoring their achievement. In addition, Cowley College interim president Tony Crouch was recognized for his support of the school’s PTK scholars. Last year, Crouch spoke with the advisors about doing more for these outstanding students, and he came up with the idea to display their photos in Galle Johnson Hall. Those photographs were revealed at the ceremony and gifts were presented in appreciation for the student efforts.

 

To this date, Cowley College’s local chapter Alpha Gamma Upsilon has a total of 84 new members for the year and looks forward to future success.
