Thirty four student members of Phi Theta Kappa from the Red Wing and Winona campuses of Minnesota State College-Southeast Technical were recognized for their accomplishments at a reception held Monday, April 18 on the Winona Campus of the college. In its third year of membership, the organization attracts students who have set high standards for themselves by achieving academic performance individually and have demonstrated leadership through serving both college and community efforts. The group is led by Angel Mytas, Psychology Instructor, Christopher Stout, History Instructor and Leah Schnaith, Chemistry Instructor as Phi Theta Kappa Advisors, for Southeast Technical College.
Established by Missouri two-year college presidents in 1918, Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society serves to recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students and provide opportunities for individual growth and development through honors, leadership and service programming. Today Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 2 million members and 1,200 chapters located in 50 United States, U.S. territories, Canada and Germany. In 1929, the American Association of Community Colleges recognized Phi Theta Kappa as the official honor society for two-year colleges.
