One group on campus is known for their ability to encourage students to ultimately become successful in their lives.
The Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) honors society is an internationally recognized honors society that empowers two-year college students who have completed at least 12 credit hours with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher.
“[The purpose is to] create opportunities for leadership and learning through service and advocacy,” says PTK chapter president Christopher Thompson.
PTK is a collegiate honors society that provides leadership, quality service and numerous scholarship opportunities.
The society also gives students the ability to network with like-minded peers who have also achieved academic excellence.
Students can become members upon invitation, and 100 to 200 students join every semester.
The Salt Lake Community College chapter of PTK is collaborating with the American Cancer Society for their Honors in Action program. Honors in Action allows students to carry out research in specific topics like health and wellness.
“[This allows students to] foster a simulating environment for intellectual growth and challenge by exploring multiple perspectives that their personal experiences and academic studies provide,” says Thompson.
PTK members become more aware of their talents, find confidence and influence others in the future leaders of America.
The SLCC chapter of PTK meets every Friday at 2:30 p.m. in Parlor B at the Taylorsville Redwood Campus.
