Halifax Community College’s Alpha Eta chapter of Phi Theta Kappa recently held its traditional candle-lighting induction and installation ceremony which included six Halifax County Early College students being welcomed into the international honor society.

The new students inducted were Hailey Harrison, Brianna O'Neal, Aniya Pittman, Zaniya Battle, Brianna Webb, and Taniyah Alston.

“I am very proud of all the new inductees of Phi Theta Kappa,” said Halifax County Schools Superintendent Eric Cunningham. “This is the first inductee class of PTK for Halifax County Early College. Our scholars should be proud of the path they are creating for themselves and others.”

Phi Theta Kappa was established in 1918 and aims to celebrate the academic achievement of college students and provide them with opportunities to grow as scholars and leaders. 

The organization is recognized as the official honor society for two-year colleges.

PTK is the largest honor society in higher education, with more than 3.5 million members worldwide. 

The society recognizes the academic achievement of two-year college students and provides them with opportunities to grow as scholars and leaders. 

To be eligible, students must complete a minimum of 12 credit hours of coursework towards an associate degree and earn a 3.5 GPA or higher. 

Students must maintain a high academic standing throughout their enrollment at the College.
