Phi-Theta-Kappa (PTK) is recognized as the official honor society for community colleges by the American Association of Community Colleges. All students who receive a 3.5 GPA or higher with at least 12 college level credits, are invited to join the Alpha-Rho-Alpha chapter of PTK at Rainy River Community College (RRCC).

Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society is recognizing 609 chapters for their efforts to bring the life-changing benefits and opportunities of PTK membership to even more students on their campuses in 2019. Phi Theta Kappa’s REACH Rewards program recognizes and rewards Phi Theta Kappa chapters that excel in membership development.“We created this program because we believe strongly in the mission of Phi Theta Kappa and want as many students as possible to receive the benefits of membership,” PTK President and CEO Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner said. “Increased opportunities to apply for scholarships and engage with their peers and key faculty members lead to higher completion rates, and students get those opportunities through PTK.”

Phi Theta Kappa chapter at RRCC has been named a 2020 REACH Chapter and will receive special recognition in the form of 4 Phi Theta Kappa graduation stoles. Current PTK members include Elizabeth Batdorf, Kenneth Markel, Kora Martin, Elina Nelson, Julia Perdoni, Evan Peterson, Sarah Schoon, Ariana Vacura (President), Monica Vellieux, and Maria Vollom.

PTK members receive a number of benefits including: recognition at graduation with PTK honors regalia, scholarship opportunities, a career development program, and opportunities to become a PTK officer and work on community and campus projects.
