Mineral Area College Inducts Students to PTK
On Oct. 11, Mineral Area College celebrated the 84th anniversary of its Lambda Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, making it the second-oldest active chapter in the state. It inducted 13 new students into the international honor society for two-year educational institutions.
Phi Theta Kappa members must earn a 3.5 GPA and maintain a 3.0 GPA. More than a million members are a part of PTK today in the U.S. and abroad, and it all began in Missouri at Stephens College in 1918.
The Mineral Area College chapter, Lambda, was formed in 1926, four years after the establishment of MAC (then known as Flat River Junior College). It is the second-oldest active chapter of PTK.
Today, the Lambda chapter inducts approximately 40 students during each fall and spring semester induction ceremony. These students promote the “four hallmarks” of Phi Theta Kappa: scholarship, leadership, fellowship, and service.
Lambda officers are: President Alex Roux; Vice President of Leadership Greg Dickinson; Vice President of Service Andy McGraw; Vice President of Fellowship Jerrid Young; Vice President of Scholarship Alex Lodholz; Vice President of Communication Maegan Melton.

Randall McLain, Cape Girardeau; Steven Beard, Bonne Terre; Alexander Lewis, Leadwood; April Henry, Mineral Point; Montana Murray, Bonne Terre; Crystal Burgess, Park Hills; Nicki Sherman, Potosi; James Moore, Farmington; Stephanie Griffin, Cadet; Tessa Oliver, Park Hills; Alice Boekemier, Fredericktown; Adam Dickey, Farmington; Courtney Coleman, Mineral Point.
