New Honor Society Members Inducted at Chesapeake

Posted on Monday, December 17, 2007

WYE MILLS – Thirty-nine new members were recently inducted into the Alpha Sigma Pi Chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) national honor society at Chesapeake College.

Family members, friends and Chesapeake employees attended the candlelight ceremony where- the students were welcomed into the international scholastic honor society.

Assistant Professor of Biology Greg Farley, who is also a PTK advisor, said the members do more than earn good grades.

"They are excellent students in that they do more than worry about the grades. They want to learn as much as they can," Farley said. "They ask questions and do extra research on a regular basis."

PTK includes community service in its mission, so the Chesapeake chapter conducts several community service projects each year.
