PTK's ABE chapter inducts 66
March 01, 2018
LBWCC in Andalusia recently held a spring semester induction ceremony for 66 eligible students into the Alpha Beta Eta Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) international honor society.
Requirements include a 3.5 grade point average or above, full-time student, good citizenship, and high moral standards.
PTK recognizes academic achievement and provides opportunities for individual growth and development through honors, leadership and service programming. It is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 2.5 million members and 1,275 chapters around the world.
Guest speaker William Alverson, attorney-at-law, told inductees to use their membership as a way to get ahead.
“You are joining an elite company. You can continue to use this to achieve whatever it is you want to do,” he said. “Life is a competition most of the time. This organization gives you leverage on the field. Continue to build on that and never be satisfied.”
Alverson also quoted former National Football League wide-receiver Jerry Rice, “’Today I will do what others will not so tomorrow I can accomplish what others cannot,’” which he said was applicable to those who joined PTK.
