Sixty-five students who have exemplified academic excellence, leadership, fellowship, and service were inducted into the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society at Middlesex Community College during a ceremony held on May 2. This international honor society represents scholastic success and academic success at two-year colleges.
Since its inception, the chapter has been an active part of the Middletown campus. Members have participated in campus-wide student-sponsored events such as distributing food baskets and gifts to area families, registering voters, assisting at blood drives, and serving as ushers and greeters at formal functions on campus. This year, members held fundraisers to provide two $500 scholarships for qualified Phi Theta Kappa students. The members also collected food and books that were distributed to Amazing Grace Food Pantry and local children’s organizations.
“Phi Theta Kappa is the oldest, largest, and most prestigious honor society serving two- year colleges around the world,” said Professor Patty Raymond. “These extraordinary students have fulfilled all requirements for membership and have been selected because they have chosen scholarship, leadership, service and fellowship as their hallmarks.”
The ceremony was organized and conducted by chapter co-advisors, Dr. Lin Lin assistant professor and program coordinator of engineering science and computer engineering technology, and Patty Raymond, professor of business administration and marketing. Lindsay Grote, president of MxCC’s Beta Gamma Xi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, and H. Brian Dumeer, chairman of the MxCC Foundation, made remarks during the induction event.
