Phi Theta Kappa
Phi Theta Kappa, PTK, is a national scholastic honorary society for two-year colleges. It was established by the presidents of the Missouri Junior Colleges for women in 1918. The purpose of Phi Theta Kappa is to recognize and encourage scholarship among associate degree students. To achieve this purpose, Phi Theta Kappa provides opportunity for development of leadership and service; for an intellectual climate to exchange ideas and ideals; for lively fellowship for scholars; and for stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence. For more information on PTK, please visit their website at www.ptk.org .
Our local chapter at Flathead Valley Community College is Alpha Iota Pi. This chapter was established in 1983 – Montana’s first two-year college honor society.
