A chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, a prestigious national honor society for community college students, is being formed at the University of New Mexico-Gallup. The chapter will be known as Beta Tau Psi. Students who have a 3.5 grade average will soon be receiving a letter of invitation to join.
“We will be actively recruiting,” said Zeke Garcia, Student Services director, adding that he also will be recruiting a faculty member to be a sponsor.
Students who become members in the honor society serve as role models for high achievement among their peers. They also have an opportunity to train for leadership roles, and to meet other club members at conferences. Students who join will also help with fund raisers for the chapter.
