Owens Students Inducted into Phi Theta Kappa Honorary Society

   Fifty-four Owens Community College students recently were recognized for their superior academic achievements and inducted into the prestigious two-year college honorary society, Phi Theta Kappa.

   Phi Theta Kappa was established in 1918 by the presidents of eight Missouri junior colleges for women. For the first six years, Phi Theta Kappa confined its activity to women's junior colleges, but in 1924 through constitutional amendment, it was enlarged to cover all junior colleges. In 1993, the society inducted its millionth member.

   Modeled after Phi Beta Kappa, the society recognizes academic excellence among two-year college students, provides opportunities for leadership training, provides an intellectual climate for the interchange of ideas, and imbues scholars with the desire for continued education. Over the years, Phi Theta Kappa has continued to promote among its membership the four hallmarks of membership: scholarship, leadership, service and fellowship.
