FORT DODGE – Iowa Central’s Lamba Kappa chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society welcomed 60 new members on Wednesday, March 13, in the Biotechnology and Health Sciences Building auditorium.

Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 1.5 million members.  Each year, approximately 100,000 students are inducted.  Eligibility for members requires a student to complete 12 hours of college coursework and requires a grade point average of 3.5 or higher.  All PTK members must maintain a 3.25 GPA after joining.

The organization’s mission is to recognize and encourage academic excellence at community colleges and to provide opportunities for individual growth and development.

Samantha McClain is the advisor of the student-run organization at Iowa Central.  This organization has focused on community service projects including an Easter egg hunt for the children of the community, making blankets for cancer survivors, and food drives for the local food bank.
