    The purpose of PTK is to recognize academic excellence and promote leadership and service.
    Among new members from the Phillips County area were Lindsay Audirsch, Eri’Neikeya Bibbs, Nigera Brice, Haley Cardwell, Brittanie Coley, April Collins, Jamie Cook, Jessica Francis, Olivia Gorman, Kristin Hamilton, Brittany Larry, Katie Martinez, Antwan Moore, and Amanda Smith. The inductees met the requirements of a minimum 3.5 GPA and at least 12 transferable college hours.
    Established in 1918, Phi Theta Kappa is the oldest and most prestigious honor society serving two-year colleges around the world. In 1929, the American Association of Community Colleges recognized Phi Theta Kappa as the official honor society for two-year colleges.
                The Society serves to recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students and provide opportunities for individual growth and development through honors, leadership and service programming. Students must rank in the top 20% of the class to be invited to membership in Phi Theta Kappa and must maintain high academic standing during their enrollment in the two-year college.
