[October 09, 2012]  Lincoln College's Iota Chi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society recently inducted 14 new members and one honorary member into the chapter.

Phi Theta Kappa is a junior college academic honor society.

To be eligible for membership, students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher and have earned a minimum of 15 credits at Lincoln College.

Each semester, the Iota Chi Chapter has an induction ceremony for its new members. Assistant Professor of Theatre Martin Holden was this fall's honorary inductee and guest speaker.

Phi Theta Kappa and the Iota Chi Chapter dedicate themselves to four hallmarks: service, scholarship, fellowship and leadership. Activities of the Lincoln College chapter include sending books to soldiers and veterans and conducting a voter registration drive. Upcoming projects will include working with the Creekside Environmental Center and Special Olympics.

Assistant Professors Spring Hyde and Will Toedtman serve as faculty advisers to the group and led the Sept. 23 ceremony.
