The Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society recognizes academic and personal excellence among associate degree students. Students who are currently enrolled, are recommended by the faculty, and have maintained a GPA of 3.5 or higher after completing 24 credit hours will be eligible for membership in Phi Theta Kappa.
The induction ceremony is in the spring and we generally get a group picture every graduation all decked out in our PTK stoles with our cap and gowns.
We also participated in the 4C Completion Corps program which is a national initiative to get community college students to promise to complete their degrees.
We have attended Regional Conferences, Leadership Conferences, and Honors Institute. Our hope is to attend a national conference being held in Washington, DC the Spring 2016 semester.
Book-a-thon at graduation: PTK members are asked to bring a book(s) and we stamp them as donations from WCC PTK then donate them 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, and Margaret Hearne Elementary.
We have helped with the 1000 Backpacks, at the soup kitchen, cleaning grounds at The Roundhouse Museum, ringing the bell for the Salvation Army at Christmas, the Medicine Drop event here at WCC, and Club Palooza.
