Seventy-three students from Finger Lakes Community College were inducted into Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society of the two-year college, on Oct. 10.
Phi Theta Kappa officers Elizabeth Pfaff, president; Ellen Martin, vice-president; Theodore Aguglia, secretary; and Maria Zeh, public relations secretary, conducted the ceremony.
Joseph Nairn, executive assistant to the president, delivered the keynote address, and alumnus William Bendschneider ’91 gave a motivational speech urging the new inductees to take advantage of the opportunities Phi Theta Kappa offers. Co-advisor Doug Albert, assistant professor of computing sciences, was made an honorary member for his service and dedication to the organization.
Phi Theta Kappa’s hallmarks are scholarship, leadership, service and fellowship. FLCC’s chapter, Alpha Epsilon Chi, was chartered in 1981 and provides leadership opportunities for members. Membership requires completion of 15 hours of associate degree course work and a GPA of 3.5. Service projects long associated with the FLCC chapter include the holiday angel tree, Relay for Life, sustainability and recycling and Adopt-a-Highway. Phi Theta Kappa students also serve as campus ambassadors.
