MCCC Campus Honor Societies Win Chapter Awards

POTTSTOWN PA – The Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, an international honor society for two-year colleges, recently recognized Montgomery County Community College’s two society chapters – Alpha Kappa Zeta at the Blue Bell campus, and Beta Tau Lambda at the Pottstown campus – as outstanding in two measurements.

Both were named to the society’s “Recognizing Excellence in Acceptance and Completion with Honors” program, for their work in bringing the valuable benefits and opportunities of membership to more students during 2020. More than 280 MCCC students were inducted into the society last year.

Both also earned “Five-Star Chapter” status, the highest level of achievement chapters can attain through participation in campus, local, regional, national and international activities. Although not present on campus for most of 2020 due to the pandemic, MCCC chapters’ members continued to meet online, participate in leadership training opportunities, and volunteer with service projects.

To be eligible for society membership, students must earn a minimum of 12 credits, maintain a grade point average of 3.5 or higher, and be of good moral character.
