Blinn College’s top academic students celebrated their membership into Phi Theta Kappa, the Junior College Honor Society when this spring’s new Beta Alpha Chapter members are inducted on Community College Day, February 5. This semester has provided Blinn with more smart cookies.
The special day was shared with current members with an increase of new members who brought their friends and families to honor their achievements.
The event’s special guests were Blinn College President Dr. Harold Nolte and the PTK’s District V Vice President of the Texas Region, Daniel Chitty. Both spoke at the Induction Ceremony. Dr. Nolte opened the ceremony with remarks regarding Community College Day and welcomed them on the behalf of Blinn College. Chitty inspired the members by discussing his experiences in the organization and how they made a positive impact on his life and the lives of others.
The new Beta Alpha members plan to continue this influence in our community this semester.
