From November until April, Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Honor Society is celebrating the achievements of their members through their “Member of the Month” program. Winners will be given a $150 gift card to EyeGlass World, a certificate of the accomplishment and a feature chronicling their academic journey that will be posted to PTK’s social media.

Qualifying Schoolcraft students must be a current member of the Omicron Iota chapter of Phi Theta Kappa and should meet the following requirements: (1) Students must have a minimum GPA of 3.5, (2) Must have completed 12 credit hours towards an associate or bachelor’s degree or 6 hours completed towards a one-year certificate, (3) Participate in three events over a three-month period.

Featured members are intended to be strong representatives of the chapter and make an effort to be strong pillars of the community.

“PTK is an opportunity to enhance your college experience,” states Matthew Fular, President of the Phi Theta Kappa. “This is especially true with those who become active in the chapter. It helps buff your resume and stand out. More importantly, I believe it holds you accountable for your academics.”

Phi Theta Kappa has 3.5 million members who strive to uphold the Hallmarks of the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society which are: Fellowship, Leadership, Service and Scholarship. They’ve been aiding students for over 100 years and continue to provide students with opportunities for professional development and academic success.
