PTK members gain experience, friends
By Juanita Kelly-Hill
Phi Theta Kappa is an honor society that recognizes the academic achievements of two-year
college students, according to LCC PTK Club President Kadyn Rohn.
The club promotes scholarship, cultivates fellowship among the students of LCC, and
encourages and provides the structure for cultural service pursuits.
“PTK also offers scholarships, volunteer opportunities and even has online, self-paced
courses called ‘Edges,’ where you receive training and prep for things such as … transferring
to a four-year university, research skills and more,” Rohn explained.
To receive an invitation from PTK and become a member, students must have a minimum
GPA of 3.25.
The club has several big plans for the fall semester, starting with its Sustainable
September event. This event will be a recycling drive, hosted at the Cesar Chavez
Learning Center at LCC’s downtown campus, Members will collect the recycled goods
to create toys.
Madie McCann, a member of PTK, said she was interested in becoming a member of the
club because she wanted to contribute more toward the community.
“This chapter of the club has impacted me, as it showed me that I am capable of contributing
and being a member of society,” McCann said.
“This group has compassionate individuals that aid in services rather than (being)
indifferent to helping.”
McCann said she recommends this group to individuals who are interested in being a
part of a bigger organization. She explained that the club is an amazing way to meet
new people, gain experiences and benefits.
