Owens Community College Students Inducted Into Epsilon Pi Tau International Honor Society

Twenty-one Owens Community College students recently were honored for their excellence in technological studies, earning membership into the Epsilon Pi Tau International Honor Society.

The Epsilon Pi Tau Honor Society was founded in 1928 with the goal of improving the general understanding of technology, while also assisting individuals in achieving high levels of technological literacy. Active in more than 45 countries, Epsilon Pi Tau membership includes individuals serving as business executives, technicians, engineers, faculty and students. The local chapter of Epsilon Pi Tau, Gamma Chi is one of over 109 chapters nationwide consisting of more than 100,000 initiates who are dedicated to enhancing educational and professional opportunities within the fields that support technology.

The overall mission of Epsilon Pi Tau is to stimulate interest and excellence within professions of technology and to promote the values and contributions of such professionals.

"Membership into Epsilon Pi Tau is an outstanding distinction that brings forth a variety of academic and professional opportunities to its inductees," said Glenn Rettig, Owens Chair of Industrial and Engineering Technologies for the Findlay- area Campus and Co-Trustee of the Epsilon Pi Tau local chapter.
