Fifty-three outstanding Cape Cod Community College students were inducted last week into  Alpha Upsilon Mu Chapter, Phi Theta Kappa (PTK). PTK is an international honor society of Associate's Degree granting colleges around the world.  Students must have earned at least a 3.5 grade point average (GPA) to be eligible for membership, and then must maintain at least a 3.25 GPA throughout their studies at CCCC to remain a member in good standing.

This is the 25th academic year that Cape Cod Community College has welcomed members into its chapter of Phi Theta Kappa.  Far more than simply an academic honor society, PTK emphasizes the importance of: Leadership, Scholarship, Fellowship, and Service, and challenges all of its members to excel in all areas on and off campus. Chapter members support the College by volunteering as tour guides, event ushers, and peer tutors, as well as organizers of their own events. The Chapter presents its “Golden Apple Award” annually to an outstanding faculty member selected by its membership. In this year’s ceremony, the chapter honored Professor Delores Bird of Pocasset, with this year’s prestigious award.
