GREAT FALLS – 15 Great Falls College MSU students were inducted into the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society induction ceremony on Thursday, April 18. Phi Theta Kappa was formed in 1910 and is the official honor society for two-year colleges

"Phi Theta Kappa provides recognition for academic and service learning achievements while in college," said Joshua Archey, Student Activities and Prevention Education Coordinator. "By being a member, students have many opportunities for scholarships both locally and nationally, as well as access to resources to grow their leadership skills."

According to the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, the average member receives $2,500 in transfer scholarships for two-year students to assist with degree completion.

In addition to scholarships, members have the opportunity to attend regional and national conferences, apply for the PTK Honors Institute with a focus in leadership development and enroll in free online professional development courses to enhance soft skillsets giving them a competitive edge when seeking employment.
