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.
