Jessica Davis of Obion County was among 13 Dyersburg State Com-munity College students recently inducted into the Alpha Epsilon Alpha (AEA) chapter of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) academic honorary society.
The goal of PTK is to recognize the academic achievements of its members and to provide an opportunity for them to become actively involved in student life at DSCC. As members of the society, students should exemplify its four hallmarks: scholarship, leadership, service and fellowship.
To be eligible for membership in the prestigious honor society, students must have completed 12 hours of college-level courses, be enrolled in at least six credit hours per semester and post a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher. The local AEA chapter was established at DSCC in 1979.
