The Beta Upsilon Delta Chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa national honor society recognizes and encourages scholarship among two-year college students, and provides opportunities for the development of leadership and service. The organization promotes an intellectual climate with the exchange of ideas and ideals for lively fellowship for scholars, and for stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence.
To be eligible for membership in Phi Theta Kappa, students must have completed a minimum of twelve semester hours of non-developmental course work and must have earned a cumulative grade point average of 3.50 or higher. To maintain membership, the student must continue high academic achievement throughout enrollment.
This year marks the fifth anniversary of the chartering of the Beta Upsilon Delta Chapter at Nash Community College. Charter members were honored at the ceremony along with inductees. Alex Barnhill, Computer-Integrated Machining instructor, recipient of the 2017 NCC Excellence in Teaching Award and chartering member of the chapter, was the guest speaker.
