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 five 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.
Addressing the new inductees, Gavin Chupp, chapter president, noted the advantages of joining Phi Theta Kapp.
“Phi Theta Kappa programs encourage students to work closely with administrators on campus, just as they would work with higher management in the workplace,” Chupp said. “Students also engage in projects designed to encourage and develop life-long and service-oriented leaders by supporting campus and local entities. Our members build a strong network and support system, and many of our members and alumni become lifelong friends.”
