PTK Honor Society Welcomes 20 New Members

Published: April 6, 2023

College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) Beta Sigma Pi Honor Society continues to grow new leaders around campus. CWI’s Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) chapter inducted 20 new members into the honor society on Saturday, April 1 — their first in-person ceremony since 2019.

Inductees and their families gathered at Nampa Campus Academic Building to hear from former PTK Honor Society officers, Jody Ayers, Beka Shelman, and Natalie D’Agostino, who shared about their experiences in the chapter and encouraged members to get involved in chapter events.

CWI Provost, Denise Aberle- Cannnata, opened the event with a welcome message and a reminder to students to take this opportunity to grow in their leadership skills and to make their mark at CWI and beyond. CWI’s PTK Honor Society 2022-2023 officer team, Maria Generalova, Bree Upchurch, Braden Rachael, Natasha Peterson, and Raquel Valdebieso, then walked the new members through the induction process and welcomed them into the PTK family.

The mission of PTK is to recognize the academic achievements of college students and provide opportunities for them to grow as scholars and leaders. The National Honor Society has over 1,300 chapters and 3.25 million members worldwide.
