On Friday, February 22, 2013, Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society inducted more than 50 new members into the Alpha Omicron Omicron Chapter at Mid Michigan Community College. To join the honor society, students must have a 3.5 Grade Point Average or higher and have completed at least 12 credit hours at MMCC.
Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society encourages the academic achievements of two-year college students and provides opportunities for individual growth and development through honors, leadership, and service programming. Today, Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 2 million members and 1,275 chapters throughout the world.
Chartered on April 18, 1989, MMCC’s chapter has a longstanding tradition of excellence. For the past four years, Alpha Omicron Omicron (AOO) has obtained the highest achievement level for a chapter—5 Star status. Through its activities, the chapter meaningfully serves the college and community. AOO is a friendly, active, community-oriented chapter.
As he addressed the new inductees, Charlie Vanconant, chapter president, noted the advantages of joining Phi Theta Kappa:
“Doors will open for you that you did not know were there. You will discover new opportunities for learning and will expand your horizons through the Honors Study Topic. Involvement in chapter projects, focused on supporting local entities, will provide opportunities for personal development and will help our college and community grow.”
