Beta Tau Kappa Chapter Charter Inked - BTC Inducts 13 in Honor Society

With the last member’s signature of the charter document on Friday, March 25, MCC-BTC’s honor society became official.  At the same moment, chapter Beta Tau Kappa joined a network of more than 1,200 Phi Theta Kappa chapters with 2 million members.

“I’m excited and honored to be part of this chapter and I’m really looking forward to the doors PTK will open,” said Judah Schad, electronic engineering technology student.  “I plan to transfer to Rolla when I complete my degree at MCC-BTC.  I’ve already checked and MU Science and Technology offer a PTK transfer scholarship for members that want to study computer engineering.”

Beta Tau Kappa members must complete a minimum of twelve hours of associate degree course work and earn a grade point average of 3.5 or higher to be eligible for membership. 

“Knowing my GPA means something is important and being recognized for it is great,” said Tim Wilcox, construction management student at BTC.  “For all the nights studying, and time spent in class, and stress endured during finals, now the BTC has an organization that specializes in recognizing people that excel.  Everyone likes being told, 'Great job!'”
