Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society Inducts New Members

Ancilla_PhiThetaKappa2015DONALDSON – Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society of two-year colleges, inducted 21 new members from Ancilla College for the spring semester in a formal ceremony Sunday, March 8th at Ancilla’s campus.

Those inducted to Ancilla’s Beta Beta Beta chapter on March 8 include: Jeremy Allison (Bremen), Leah Binion (Walkerton), Barbara Caudill (Culver), Alexandra Cobb (Valparaiso), Valarie Cramer (Plymouth), Valdo Garcia (Elkhart), Kelly Graham (Knox), Stoney Hartle (Bourbon), Leah Hoff (Rochester), Brayann Ingersoll (Knox), Kristen Keehn (North Liberty), Taylor Kemble (Knox), Kayte Miller (Royal Center), Caleb Moneyheffer (Warsaw), Bryce Nickell (Bremen), Joshua Santos (London, England), Sheyanne Scheffer (Rochester), John Paul Secrest (Claypool), Ryan Shanks (Bo’ness, Scotland), Sophia Smith (Zeeland, MI), and Benjamin Wignall (Valparaiso).

“These students are to be commended for their exemplary academic accomplishments,” said Cynthia Cawthon, who serves as the chapter’s co-advisor alongside fellow faculty member Chelsea Chalk.  “They must attain a cumulative 3.5 grade point average to be invited to join Phi Theta Kappa. As commuter students maintaining hectic schedules, this is not a simple feat.”
