The Chippewa Valley Technical College chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society will induct its newest members Wednesday, March 7, during a ceremony at 5 p.m. in the auditorium of the Business Education Center.
Phi Theta Kappa is a national organization that recognizes and encourages outstanding academic achievement by students attending two-year colleges.
CVTC is home to the Beta Rho Omega chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, which will be inducting its fifth class of inductees during Wednesday’s ceremony. At least 35 students will be inducted following an address by Ellen Kirking, CVTC’s vice president of education.
To be eligible for induction to Phi Theta Kappa, students must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or better and have completed at least 12 credit hours of associate degree coursework.
In addition to recognizing outstanding scholarship by CVTC students, the Beta Rho Omega chapter also provides members the opportunity for personal development by participating in leadership and community service opportunities.
This academic year, the Beta Rho Omega chapter has conducted a book drive to support the St. Paul-based Books for Africa program.
Advisors to the CVTC chapter of Phi Theta Kappa are Alisa Hoepner Schley, Student Life specialist; Kristi Hagen, instructor in the Center for Behavioral Science and Civic Effectiveness; and Bob Brown, instructor in the English and Communication Department.
