Twenty-nine Seminole State College students were recently inducted into the Alpha Theta Nu Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society for Two-Year Colleges.

Students are selected based on their scholarship, leadership and service qualities. The chapter provides programs, activities and participation in community service projects.

Requirements for membership at SSC include: enrollment at an accredited two-year college with a Phi Theta Kappa chapter and an overall GPA of 3.5 in a minimum of 12 credit hours.

SSC Regent and Executive Director of the Jasmine Moran Children’s Museum Marci Donaho was the special guest speaker for the evening. Donaho was appointed to the SSC Board of Regents by Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry in 2005, and reappointed in 2012 by Governor Mary Fallin.
