State Tech inducts 83 to Phi Theta Kappa
Eighty-three State Technical College of Missouri students recently were inducted as members of the college’s Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, Alpha Phi Omicron Chapter.
“We are proud to welcome so many new members to Phi Theta Kappa this spring,” said Angela Gaines, STC Phi Theta Kappa advisor.
Phi Theta Kappa recognizes and encourages the academic achievement of two-year college students. Each candidate for membership must have completed 12 semester hours of associate degree coursework, with a grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and adhere to the school conduct code and possess recognized qualities of citizenship.
“Being initiated into Phi Theta Kappa is an honor that stays with a student throughout their life,” said Dr. Donald Claycomb, STC President.
Established by Missouri two-year college presidents in 1918, Phi Theta Kappa is the leading international honor society for two-year colleges. Today, Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 2 million members and 1,200 chapters in the United State, Canada and Germany.

With more than 25 programs, State Technical College of Missouri is Missouri’s only public two-year technical college with a statewide mission. STC has campuses in Linn, Mexico and Jefferson City. STC prepares students for profitable employment and a life of learning.
