Louisburg College inducted a total of 37 students to honor society Phi Theta Kappa this semester. Peer PTK members Mckenzi Ellis, Deneysha Goods and Terri'ale Hall performed the ceremony and inductees signed themselves into members and lit a blue candle, symbolic of the torch of knowledge. Remarks were made by College President Dr. Mark La Branche and PTK Advisor Dr. Louise Mitchum.

Membership in PTK affords member students increased access to scholarships, honors and leadership development programs that bring out and strengthen true potential, online transfer tools, opportunities to strengthen soft skills sought by employers, and a support system of like-minded two-year college students, faculty, staff and administrators.

Established by Missouri two-year college presidents in 1918, Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society serves to recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students and provide opportunities for individual growth and development through honors, leadership and service programming. Today, Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 2.5 million members and 1,275 chapters located in all 50 United States, U.S. territories, Canada and Germany.
