Sixteen new members were inducted to the Edison State Community College Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) during a ceremony on Wednesday, April 12 at the Piqua Campus. Each semester, students are invited to join the honor society based upon academic criteria.

The Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society was established in 1918 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.

New inductees include Charity Barnes of Ansonia, McKenna Bollinger of Troy, Kari Clements of Troy, Matt Collett of Piqua, Michelle Collett of Piqua, Jonathon Holman of Greenville, Carrie Kautz of Greenville, Sierra Keller of Greenville, Amanda Mitchell of Sidney, Mary Mohr of Union, Jacquelynn Roediger of Sidney, Joshua Ruff of Dayton, Ayoub Samari of Sidney, Samuel Schulze of Fairborn, Penny Stallard of Tipp City, and Melissa Tucker of Troy.

During the ceremony, Associate Professor of English William Loudermilk recognized the candidates for their academic achievements.

"We welcome, congratulate, and are proud of our newly inducted, well-deserving members," said Loudermilk.

Each semester, the Student Leadership Committee selects a member of the Edison State faculty or staff to honor during the ceremony. This semester, Andrea Francis, Marketing Communications Specialist, was commended for supporting community outreach goals put forth by Edison State's PTK.

"It is a privilege to be honored," said Francis. "The work that these students are doing to support communities throughout the region is tremendous and I'm happy to help them reach their goals."

Recognized by the American Association of Community Colleges as the official honor society for two-year colleges, Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 2.5 million members and 1,275 chapters.
