New faces inducted into Butler's Phi Theta Kappa Chapter

Ptk Fall 2021
Published: Tuesday, December 14th, 2021

This was the first face-to-face induction in three semesters

In late October Butler Community College’s five-star chapter inducted 321 new members into the honor society Phi Theta Kappa (PTK). This was the first face-to-face induction ceremony since 2019 due to Covid-19.  

In order to become a PTK member, students must earn a minimum 3.5 GPA from at least 12 credit hours of 100-level classes or higher. After those requirements are met, students are personally invited to join.

Two past Butler PTK alums, Emily Crow (2018-2019) of Wichita and Alyssa Dehncke-White (2016-2017) of Wichita addressed Butler’s new PTK inductees during the special ceremony held on the El Dorado campus.

“Emily and Alyssa’s presentations gave personal insights on how being a PTK member has enhanced their personal, educational and professional endeavors,” said Chrissy Gifford, Butler’s PTK Advisor.

Phi Theta Kappa is the international honor society for two-year colleges. The organization was formed in 1918 on the pillars of: Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Fellowship. Today, Phi Theta Kappa not only recognizes students’ academic success, but through online courses gives them the opportunities to develop professionally, earn scholarships, enhance leadership skills and explore career options.
