Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Dec. 3, 2014 9A Phi Theta Kappa back College resurrects honor society James Wilson Staff Writer Feather River College honor students gather at the induction ceremony for Phi Theta Kappa on Nov. 21. The college recently revived the honor society's local chapter, which had been dormant for years. Photo by Toni Williams After years of absence from Feather River College, the Phi Theta Kappa academic honor society is back. The college inducted 25 new members into the international society Nov. 21. According to FRC's website, the mission of Phi Theta Kappa is to recognize and encourage the academic achievement of college students and to provide opportunities for individual growth and development through participation in scholarship, leadership, fellowship and service programming. FRC's chapter, called Alpha Psi Zeta, was originally founded in 1993. For at least seven years, said Alpha Psi Zeta's advisor, Katie Desmond, the chapter was dormant. The college's Academic Senate recognized the importance of acknowledging academic excellence in students and decided to revive the honor society. Students have to meet certain requirements to be considered eligible for the society. Eligible students have to have at least a 3.25 grade-point average, have completed at least 12 units, currently be enrolled and maintain ethical and academic standing. After reviewing students' data, Desmond found that 140 qualified. One barrier some of the eligible students faced was the price to join Phi Theta Kappa. To join, a one-time fee, along with local chapter fees, is required. The FRC Foundation was able to pay the fees for eight Of the students and 17 others paid the fees themselves. "One advantage to joining is the students will be eligible for more scholarships," said Desmond. "A lot of scholarship opportunities don't include international students, which FRC has a lot of. They'll now be eligible for Phi Theta Kappa scholarships." Before the FRC chapter's fiwst official meeting, scheduled for January, Phi Theta Kappa students organized a food drive that will be active through December.
