ACC PTK Inducts New Members
News Release
Thursday, April 19, 2018

The Phi Theta Kappa Mu Upsilon Chapter at Alvin Community College recently inducted its newest members during a recent ceremony.

The chapter added 53 students to the honor society.

“One of the benefits of joining Phi Theta Kappa is the opportunity to join a fellowship devoted not only to learning and academic achievement, but to service in the community,” said Brian Berger, Phi Theta Kappa advisor.

Phi Theta Kappa is the international honor society of two-year colleges.  Members follow four hallmarks, including scholarship, leadership, service and fellowship.  To be eligible for Phi Theta Kappa, students must have completed at least 12 college credit hours at ACC and maintained a grade point average of 3.5 or above.

“The people you meet bring a unique perspective to students, providing them with a greater in-depth understanding of the world,” Berger said.

More than 4,000 ACC students have been inducted into Phi Theta Kappa since the ACC Mu Upsilon Chapter was created in 1963.

Students in Phi Theta Kappa will participate in community projects and research projects during their time in the organization. This year’s project will involve assistance to services members.

“Our service project this year is focused on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in military veterans and the role of service animals (puppies) in this treatment,” Berger said.

Guest speakers at the ceremony included Phi Theta Kappa District IV Vice President Stephanie McSheehy, ACC Honors Chair Elizabeth McLane and Joyce Taylor, Behavioral Science lecturer at University of Houston Clear Lake.

The newest members are: Sidney Anderson, Alexia Andrade, Kathy Arenas, Rosalinda Arredondo, Maggie Barry, Erika Bobadilla, Madison Bochard, Sarah Bowman, Kyrsten Breaux, Joselin Burgos, Faith Carlos, Noah Chicoria, Kelly Childers, Esther Christodoss, My Dang, Kimberly Davis, Augustin Encinia, Roberto Ganoza, Suzannah Gilbert, Rhonda Gonzalez, Garrett Heidrich, Hannah Hendricks, Julia Hensley, Dawn Howells, Lori Ivy, Savannah Krenek, Michael Lombardi, Andrew Molidor, Bianca Montemayor, Mason Myers, Matthew Myers, Dustin Page, Hiral Patel, Purvis Patrick, Darryl Perry, Jacob Phillips, James Rannik, Meagan Ripple, Meagan Robertson, Jessica Robledo, Anayeli Salinas, Andrea Salinas, Pauline Smith, Jerrod South, Camille Surima, Blaire Tacquard, Rafaelle Tkac, Kylie Trant, Tessa Williams, Kaysie Wilson, Jordan Wix, Jennifer Wood and Katherine Yuchnewicz.
