Edison inducts students to PTK

Staff report

PIQUA — Three students from Sidney were among 16 new members to be inducted into the Edison State Community College Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa during a ceremony, April 12, at the Piqua campus.

Each semester, students are invited to join the honor society based upon academic criteria.

The Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society was established in 1918 to recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students and provide opportunities for individual growth and development through honors, leadership and service programming.

Local inductees were Amanda Mitchell, Jacquelynn Roediger and Ayoub Samari.

During the ceremony, Associate Professor of English William Loudermilk recognized the candidates for their academic achievements.

“We welcome, congratulate and are proud of our newly inducted, well-deserving members,” said Loudermilk.

Each semester, the Student Leadership Committee selects a member of the Edison State faculty or staff to honor during the ceremony. This semester, Andrea Francis, marketing communications specialist, was commended for supporting community outreach goals put forth by Edison State’s PTK chapater.

“It is a privilege to be honored,” said Francis. “The work that these students are doing to support communities throughout the region is tremendous, and I’m happy to help them reach their goals.”
