Storer Auditorium was packed for Monday night’s Phi Theta Kappa induction ceremony,

OCC’s chapter of international honor society Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) gained more than 200 new members Monday night during its spring induction ceremony.

The celebration of academic excellence began with the National Anthem performed by vocalists and OCC Music students Justin Abbott, Brittany Montpetit and Darci Prentice. They were accompanied by Dr. Kevin Moore on the piano.

After PTK officer Josh Hummell welcomed everyone to the ceremony, Interim Provost and Senior Vice President Dr. Julie White delivered congratulatory remarks.

PTK Advisor Dr. Annie Tuttle reviewed the organization’s activities during the 2015-16 academic year. She also presented a PTK Honorary Membership to PTK and Honors Coordinator Jacqueline Barstow.

PTK President Iga Szczepanik spoke next and shared her story of coming to the United States from Poland and how much the organization played a role in her growth.

Following Szczepanik each of the new inductees were honored. Students must achieve a minimum 3.5 grade point average to be considered for membership. New inductees names are listed at the bottom of this story beneath the photo slideshow.
