Atlantic Cape Inducts 121 Students Into Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society

May 31, 2018

Atlantic Cape Community College welcomed 121 inductees into the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society May 4, in the Walter Edge Theater at the Mays Landing Campus. Speakers at the induction were: Dr. Josette Katz, interim vice president of Academic Affairs at Atlantic Cape; John Ortiz, associate coordinator of Middle States/New Jersey; and Courtney Rice, former Phi Theta Kappa Middle States Region New Jersey president and Atlantic Cape alumna. Outgoing officers for the 2017-18 year were David R. Smith, president; Orsalia Parasalini, outgoing executive vice president; Joseph Merlo, outgoing treasurer. New officers for 2018-19 were also inducted: Carissa Roselli, president; Joseph Merlo, executive vice president; Samantha Carey, vice president of leadership; and Andre Robinson, treasurer.

Established by two-year college presidents in 1918, Phi Theta Kappa recognizes the academic achievements of two-year college students and encourages academic growth. In 1929, the American Association of Community Colleges recognized Phi Theta Kappa as the official honor society for two-year colleges. It is the largest honor society in American higher education today, with more than 2 million members in the United States, U.S. territories, Canada and Germany.

Candidates must meet this criteria for induction: be a full- or part-time student enrolled at Atlantic Cape; have earned 12 general education credits to date, either from Atlantic Cape or another community college; and hold a 3.5 cumulative grade point average.
