Brazosport College’s Psi Psi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society recently inducted its new members at a ceremony at The Clarion at Brazosport College. A total of 70 students accepted membership in the Fall 2021 semester.

The mission of Phi Theta Kappa is to recognize academic achievement of college students and to provide opportunities for them to grow as scholars and leaders. Phi Theta Kappa was founded in Missouri in 1918 and is the international honor society of two-year colleges. The organization has a presence on almost 1,300 community college campuses in 11 nations.

The American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) recognized Phi Theta Kappa as the official honor society for two-year colleges in 1929. More than 3.5 million students have been inducted since 1918, with approximately 250,000 active members in the nation’s community colleges, making Phi Theta Kappa a true catalyst among members and colleges.
