Honor society induction

The Central Lakes College honor society, Upsilon Omega chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, on Sat., Dec. 5 inducted new members. PTK is the international honor society for two-year college students and is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 1.3 million members who have achieved membership due to academic standing. To be eligible for membership a student must have earned a 3.5 GPA while enrolled for at lest 12 credits of education. By increasing membership 25 percent over last year the chapter has earned the Pinnacle Award. This means five $45 scholarships that must be used for International Membership fees for a new inductee. The scholarships will go to deserving, eligible students who otherwise could not afford to join Phi Theta Kappa. Advisers are faculty Nancy Smith and Ryan Deblock.
