Sierra College’s Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society inductionsBy: Staff report
Sierra College’s Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society held their Induction Ceremony on May 4. Friends, family members, and professors gathered to formally recognize over 30 Sierra College honor students for their 3.5 and above GPAs as well as celebrating the accomplishments of the Beta Mu Zeta chapter over the last year. The Induction ceremony led by incoming Vice President Natalie Rowland and current President Kylene Landenberger shined a light on the tremendous academic success, work ethic, and camaraderie shared among the members of Sierra’s PTK Program.
Phi Theta Kappa is the world’s largest and most prestigious honor society that provides scholarship opportunities for millions of two-year college students across 1,300 chapters nationwide.
“The PTK Chapter of Sierra College is committed to cultivating leaders on campus, celebrating diversity, and providing services to families in Placer County and the Greater Sacramento Area,” a news release said.
This year, students formed committees and rallied around causes they felt passionate about. The “Period Poverty” committee collected donations of feminine products for women homes and shelters, and “Sierra Buddies” provided birthday presents to surprise children of CalWORKs families through donations they collected.
“The members of Sierra College PTK believe that it is important for our community to know that Sierra College offers a wide range of excellent academic programs that equip high-achieving students for success as they transfer on to universities,” the news release said.
