HCC Phi Theta Kappa donates to Hannah's House
 
WELDON, N.C. – The Halifax Community College (HCC) Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) International Honor Society Alpha Eta Phi Chapter made a donation to Hannah's House on Oct. 18. The donation began when Steve DeBurr, owner, and Kenneth Frye, driver, of DTS Refrigerated Transport out of Littleton donated 120 cases of plain and vanilla Greek yogurt to PTK. Then, knowing Hannah’s House needed supplies, PTK donated the items to the organization.

The Alpha Eta Phi Chapter was chartered at HCC on April 1, 1982. Since then, the chapter has inducted more than 500 members, representing the top 10 percent of the student population. To qualify for membership, students must be enrolled in an associate degree program and must maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5 (full-time) and 3.7 (part-time). Students must be of good moral character and possess recognized qualities of leadership.

Currently, PTK is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 2.5 million members and 1,275 chapters. It was established in Missouri by two-year college presidents in 1918, and serves to recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students and provide opportunities for individual growth and development through honors, leadership and service programming.
