The Panola College Pi Beta chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society held its induction ceremony on Thursday Nov. 3.

Phi Theta Kappa was formed in 1918 by Missouri two-year college presidents. Today Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education with more that 2 million members and 1,200 chapters located in the 50 United States, U.S. territories, Canada, and Germany.

Phi Theta Kappa members are eligible for  more than $37 million in transfer scholarship opportunities. Some scholarships offered by local schools include a $11,000 per academic year scholarship through East Texas Baptist University, a $3,000 scholarship at LeTourneau University, and a $1,500 scholarship through UT Tyler.

The Phi Beta chapter is a long standing club here at Panola College. Members may attend monthly meetings, and participate in community service projects coordinated by the club.

To be eligible for Phi Theta Kappa membership through Panola College students must have a GPA of 3.5 or above and have completed a minimum of 12 transferable hours through Panola College.

At the ceremony Tonya Fotinos welcomed the 2016 inductees and their family and friends, then the Panola Chorale Ensemble performed a Phi Theta Kappa song.

Then Corey Johnson, Biology professor at Panola College and Pi Beta alumni, spoke on sayings to live your life by.

Finally the new members walked to the front and received their certificates from Emily Zabcik, Chapter Advisor and Mathematics professor and Panola College.
