College Welcomes 34 New Members of the International Honor Society Phi Theta Kappa

Thirty- four (34) outstanding Cape Cod Community College students, representing 24 towns within the Cape, the Islands, and Southeastern Massachusetts,  are the newest members of Alpha Upsilon Mu Chapter, Phi Theta Kappa (PTK). PTK is the national honor society of Associate's Degree granting colleges around the world.  Students must have earned at least a 3.5 grade point average (GPA) to be eligible for membership, and then must maintain at least a 3.25 GPA throughout their studies at CCCC to remain a member in good standing.

This is the 25th academic year that Cape Cod Community College has been welcoming members into its chapter of Phi Theta Kappa.  Far more than simply an academic honor society, PTK emphasizes the importance: Leadership, Scholarship, Fellowship, and Service, and challenges all of its members to excel in all areas on and off campus. Chapter members support the College by volunteering as tour guides, event ushers, and peer tutors, as well as hosting their own events, and joining as collaborators with other campus organizations. The Chapter presents its “Golden Apple Award” annually to an outstanding faculty, and will do so in the late Spring of the coming year.

This Fall’s inductees come from a wide geographic region reaching from Plymouth to Wellfleet. Joining the organization this Fall ere (in alphabetical order by town):
