Phi Theta Kappa
Phi Theta Kappa is the International Honor Society for two-year colleges. Its purpose is to recognize and encourage scholarship among college students. To achieve this purpose, Phi Theta Kappa provides the opportunity for the development of leadership and service, for an intellectual climate to exchange ideas and ideals, for lively fellowship for scholars, and for stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence.
The purpose of the Alpha Beta Eta Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa at Lurleen B. Wallace Community College is to promote the society's four hallmarks; scholarship, leadership, service, and fellowship among qualified students on the Andalusia and MacArthur Campuses of the College. Our members participate in current Honors Study Topic projects, host Commit to Complete events, honors satellite seminars, leadership seminars, community service projects, and fundraisers.
