As an academic honor society with hallmarks in service, fellowship, leadership and scholarship, Phi Theta Kappa is filled with opportunities for networking, team building and serving the community with fundraising and service projects. PTK also provides scholarships for students looking to eventually transfer to a four-year college as well as letters of recommendation to potential schools and employers.
Plans for this semester include a trip to the Texas Leadership Conference in Weatherford, a district meeting, PTK mixer, as well as giving out its annual Excellence in Teaching awards to the top KC teachers nominated and voted on by the student body.
The organization is open to all students who meet the minimum requirement of at least 12 completed hours and a GPA of 3.5 or higher. However, to maintain membership, a student must keep a 3.2 GPA though anyone who has yet to meet the prerequisites to join can still get involved.
