Local Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society Chapter Achieves Four-Star Designation

Aiken Technical College’s Alpha Xi Lambda Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society has been designated a four-star chapter by the international honor society.

The organization’s membership consists of students from two-year colleges who have achieved a 3.5 or higher cumulative grade point average. More than 190 ATC students are members of the local chapter.

Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society has a Five Star Chapter Plan initiative to encourage chapters to engage its membership and be involved in campus and community activities. Each star level, up to five stars, consists of several requirements.

To achieve the four-star designation, the chapter organized membership recruitment campaigns, met with College administration to develop and discuss goals, attended regional conferences, documented the chapter’s activities, communicated chapter news with members, and implemented a college project.

“The Five Star Chapter Plan is a formal guide that allows chapters to ensure that their Phi Theta Kappa students are able to take advantage of all of the opportunities,” said Daniela Payne, co-advisor for the organization.  “Our PTK officers this semester worked extremely hard to gain the four-star level recognition.”

Membership in the organization is by invite-only. The organization provides students with opportunities to develop leadership skills, access career readiness training, participate in undergraduate research, participate in community service initiatives, and apply for scholarships to continue their education.
