The Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society recognizes academic and personal excellence among associate degree students. Students who are currently enrolled, recommended by the faculty, and have a 3.5 or higher GPA after completing 24 credit hours will be eligible for membership in Phi Theta Kappa. The induction ceremony is held once a year in the spring. Members may invite family and friends to the induction ceremony. Members may be eligible to attend Regional Conferences in the spring, Honors Institute in the summer, and Leadership Conferences in the fall.
For conference or application dates, please contact one of the PTK advisors listed below.
Book-a-thon at Graduation
PTK members are asked to bring books that will be stamped as donations from WCC PTK then donated locally. Some of the places that have received our book donations in past years were the Eastern NC Deaf School, Wesley Shelter, Woodard Charter School, Margaret Hearne Elementary, and the Boys and Girls Club of Wilson.
Prom Attire Giveaway
PTK members collect donations of prom attire and present it to the community before prom season. All public high schools in the county are invited to come and “shop” for dresses and shoes.
Other Volunteer Opportunities
PTK has helped with the back to school Backpack Drive in Wilson county, served at the Community Soup Kitchen, donated can goods to local veterans, put on an Easter Egg Hunt for a local daycare, volunteered as helpers at an elementary school’s field day, read to and tutored elementary school students, shared kindness rocks across campus, and had fundraisers at local restaurants. We honor fellowship and service.
PTK provides a scholarship to help a student in need with the application fee to join. This is available each semester.
There are many opportunities for those that choose to be involved.
