Two organizations on campus induct students
Pratt Community College’s Phi Theta Kappa and Kappa Beta Delta Business Honor Society inducted 27 students into the two programs on March 1 in Carpenter Auditorium.
Phi Theta Kappa, an honor society for two-year colleges, inducted 20 students into the program.
Kappa Beta Delta, an honor society for business, management and administration majors, inducted seven students into the organization.
“These students worked hard to achieve this level of attainment,” said William Wojciechowski, President of PCC, during the ceremony. “Along with their academic accomplishments these students are also leaders, not only at the college, but also in the community.”
During the inductions the students took part in a candlelight ceremony and students joining both organizations said a pledge.
Misty Beck, drama and speech instructor at the college and a past PTK member gave a speech about 15 lessons she learned while she was a student at PCC.
“The most important lessons I learned in college were life lessons, not information from the book,” Beck said.
Beck’s lessons included: teamwork, conflict management, having passion in life and paying attention.
After the presentation was over students received their certificates.
