Black River Technical College (BRTC) Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) hosted a recruitment day recently to draw the attention to the organization from students interested in becoming PTK members.
Phi Theta Kappa is the honor society for 2-year colleges across the country. It requires that students have at least 12 credit hours and a 3.5 GPA to join. PTK offers leadership skills, community service hours, and access to over 90 million dollars in scholarship opportunities to its members.
Invitation letters are sent out to eligible students each semester and an Induction Ceremony will be held at 4 p.m. on March 28 in the Randolph County Development Center.
PTK was established in 1918. It recognizes college students’ academic achievements and provides opportunities for its members to grow as scholars and leaders. Membership requires at least 12 hours of coursework toward an associate or at least six hours of coursework toward a one-year certificate with a 3.5 GPA. Members have access to more than $90 million in scholarships, including $37 million in transfer scholarships from 750 four-year universities.
