CCAC to hold college-wide Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society induction ceremony on November 18
PITTSBURGH—The Community College of Allegheny County will hold an induction ceremony for new Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Honor Society members on Friday, November 18, at 6:00 p.m. on CCAC Allegheny Campus. Approximately 50 student inductees from the four CCAC campus chapters of PTK will participate. It will be CCAC’s first college-wide PTK Honor Society induction ceremony. The four student chapter presidents will officiate, and chapter advisors will confer honor stoles on the new inductees. Chapter advisors also will install the chapter presidents and a total of 21 officers from Boyce, North, South and Allegheny campuses.
Speakers will include CCAC President Dr. Quintin Bullock, CCAC North Campus President Dr. Gretchen Mullin-Sawicki, and CCAC Provost Dr. Stuart Blacklaw. Also in attendance will be campus presidents, deans, assistant deans and Student Life personnel. The celebration will conclude with a reception.
The purpose of Phi Theta Kappa is to recognize and encourage scholarship among two-year college students. To achieve this goal, PTK provides opportunities for the development of leadership and service, for an intellectual climate for the exchange of ideas and ideals, for lively fellowship for scholars and for stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence.
The ceremony will take place on CCAC Allegheny Campus, Foerster Student Services Center Auditorium, 808 Ridge Avenue, Pittsburgh, Pa., 15212.
