Congratulations 2024 Inductees!

Ninety students were recently inducted into the Beta Zeta Theta chapter of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society at Johnston Community College for the 2023-24 academic year. The induction ceremony was held April 18 in the Paul A. Johnston Auditorium.

The international honor society recognizes the academic achievement of two-year college students and provides opportunities for individual growth and development through honors, leadership, and service programming. To be invited to be a member of Phi Theta Kappa, a student must have completed at least 12 hours of coursework toward an associate degree and obtained a 3.5 grade point average.

Donna Hinnant, Department Chair of Allied Health Programs, delivered an inspiring keynote address. With a wealth of experience in nursing and a leadership style rooted in humility, Donna shared invaluable insights on what it truly means to be an exceptional leader. Her blend of personal anecdotes and professional wisdom left a lasting impression, igniting a sense of motivation and empowerment to aspire to greatness in leadership roles.

As they were announced individually, the inductees walked across the stage and signed the chapter record book. The inductees then recited a pledge of allegiance to the society and to uphold the values of leadership, scholarship, fellowship, and service. The induction concluded with a ceremonial lighting of candles.

Next was the installation of the 2024-25 Chapter Officers. Those in service are Robyn Matthews, (returning) Chapter President; Tiffany Perez, VP of Fellowship; Deysi Ramirez Rubio, VP of Membership; Emily Flores, VP of Public Relations; Brittany Buchanan, VP of Scholarship; Sophia Pak, VP of Service; Maya O’Dell, VP of Social Media; Madison Burton, Recording Officer
