CLEVELAND, WI —

Fifty-eight students from Lakeshore Technical College were inducted into the Beta Lambda Sigma Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society in a recent ceremony held at Lakeshore Technical College. A total of 144 students joined during this academic year.

Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), a community for high achieving students, is one of the largest and most prestigious honor societies in higher education. It is the only honor society that serves two-year colleges offering associate degree programs. Membership is based primarily on academic excellence and is extended by invitation only.

“We are incredibly proud of everything these LTC students have accomplished. Membership in Phi Theta Kappa is a way for us to honor our students who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement,” said LTC President Paul Carlsen. “In addition to the recognition, PTK offers students numerous opportunities for scholarships, leadership development, and service to their communities.”
