PTK 2017 group

SAVANNAH – Savannah Technical College inducted 43 students into its 2017 class for Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society’s Beta Xi Tau Chapter recently. To be eligible for membership, students must have completed a minimum of 12 degree-level semester credit hours and have a grade point average of 3.5 or higher. The STC Beta Xi Tau Chapter now has more than 475 members.

In the ceremony, STC Academic Vice President Dr. Al Cunningham challenged the new members to continue their hard work at Savannah Tech, at future colleges/universities or occupations.  “Phi Theta Kappa is not the end of your studies,” said Cunningham. “It is, in fact, just the beginning.”  He also encouraged the members to step into leadership positions as they further their education or enter into their future occupations.

The American Association of Community Colleges recognizes Phi Theta Kappa as the official honor society for two-year colleges.
