Mesalands Community College recently had an induction ceremony for the new members of the Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) International Honor Society. Eight new students were inducted into this prestigious organization. Inductees from the fall 2015 semester also participated in this formal ceremony. Phi Theta Kappa is based on academic achievement and offers personal development through scholarship, service, fellowship, and leadership.

Each candidate for membership in Phi Theta Kappa must have completed 12 semester hours that may lead to a declared Associate’s degree, with a grade point average of a 3.5 on a 4.0 scale, be currently enrolled in six credit hours, and adhere to the school code. A cumulative grade point average of 3.0 must be maintained to remain in good standing.

Linda Sims, Nurse Practitioner for the Sunrise Medical Group in Tucumcari, was the guest speaker at the induction ceremony. Sims commended the PTK inductees on continuing their education.

“Get your education and love every minute of it!” Sims said. “Be very proud of your accomplishments and believe in what you do.”
