NEO’s Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society inducts 27 students

Miami, Okla. – Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2013 -- Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College’s (NEO) Mu chapter of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) recently inducted 27 students into the prestigious international honor society. The ceremony took place last week. The keynote speaker for the evening was Dr. Shannon Cunningham, assistant vice president of academic affairs.

Cunningham spoke about how students can use their gift of intelligence, and how powerful intellect really is.

She also showed the students a YouTube video that involved a “pep talk” from a young child.

To gain admittance into PTK, which is an international honor society, students must complete at least 12 hours of courses and maintain a 3.5 grade point average. Through their membership in PTK, students have access to scholarships and service opportunities.

The Mu chapter on the NEO campus is very involved. They are committed to serve the campus by providing student manpower to clean up after football games held at the NEO stadium. PTK sponsors the Food-4-Finals event, a tutoring session and breakfast held every semester during finals week to provide instructor/student interaction as students prepare for final exams. Students are currently working on their college and honor’s project that involves creating awareness on the NEO campus of the Miami downtown area and working in conjunction with the City of Miami officials to make this happen.

“I'm extremely pleased with this semester's inductees. Earning an invitation into PTK is recognition for their hard work and potential, and both myself, my co-sponsor, Rob Rea, and our officers, look forward to helping each of them reach their goals,” said LaShawna Powers, PTK’s new co-sponsor. “We have no doubt that they can achieve whatever they set out to do.”
