In a ceremony held yesterday December 1 2016, at the Paraquita Bay campus of the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College (HLSCC), twenty students were inducted into the Beta Omicron Sigma Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society for the Fall 2016 semester. Among the new inductees five members of the highly raved Stingray Singers Band earned the academic recognition to be members of the honor society.
Students with at least 12 hours of degree course work and a minimum GPA of 3.4 receive membership based on their superior academic achievement which is conferred only by invitation by the local Chapter. To remain a member, students must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.4. Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education for two-year colleges with over two million members in over 1,300 community colleges in eight (8) nations around the world from as far as the Middle East, Europe, Canada, USA to the door steps of the BVI. Membership not only provides students with permanent recognition for their academic excellence but also provides opportunities to gain access to approximately $37 million in transfer scholarships offered to PTK members by more than 700 four-year colleges and universities, discounts on study aids, career preparation and more which students of HLSCC have benefited from.
College President Dr. Janet Smith said in her remarks to the inductees “I challenge all of you stay focused on your education, work hard and finish your degrees so that one day, one of you can be that HLSCC student that wins a Nobel Prize.” Associate Vice President Dr. Sauda Smith outlined to the students that they should feel proud of their new membership with the society. Dr. Sauda Smith remarked, “the HLSCC chapter also known as the “BOS” chapter is now in its 10th year with over 300 members, and can be classified as being one of the most decorated chapters by the distinction of being the only chapter outside of the United States and Canada to achieve five stars out of the five star chapter development system, the only chapter outside the United States to be named in the top 100 chapters, having an International Vice President, an Association of Chapter Advisors Immediate Past President, a Member of the Honors Programme Council, a Paragon New Advisor, two Distinguished Advisors, and one Marshall Award winner. This honor society is a place where opportunities begin and it’s ok to be smart.”
