The Beta Beta Chi Chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Honor Society at the Northampton Community College Monroe Campus has been busy this past academic year. The student members and their advisors had been hard at work developing a stronger chapter by holding information sessions for prospective students, meeting on a regular basis, working on projects from the PTK Honors Program Guide, and getting together with NCC leaders to develop and discuss goals of the chapter.
For doing all this and more, Beta Beta Chi received special commendation during the Middle States Regional Convention for fulfilling all requirements to be named a "2 Star Chapter."
"Congratulations on a job well done by the advisors and the students," said Belinda Austin, associate dean of Student Services at Monroe. "Everyone should be very proud of this accomplishment!"
PTK is an international honor society for students at two-year and junior colleges. To qualify for membership, inductees must have a 3.5 or higher grade point average, be enrolled in an associate degree program, and perform community service work.
The Tau Gamma Chapter of PTK at Main Campus also received recognition as a "3 Star Chapter."
