Phi Theta Kappa chapters at MGCCC campuses receive top national ratings

June 20, 2013

Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society chapters at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College’s campuses were named Five Star Chapters by the society during the annual convention held in May in San Jose, California. The Omicron Alpha Chapter at the Jefferson Davis Campus; the Gamma Nu Chapter, at the Perkinston Campus; and the Pi Epsilon Chapter at the Jackson County Campus received special commendations and are recognized on the society website at

“Our honors students and Phi Theta Kappa members worked very hard to make this a reality and we are thrilled they have received recognition for their efforts,” said Dr. Mary S. Graham, MGCCC president. “Having this designation and maintaining these standards will offer our students more opportunities for success at all MGCCC campuses.”

The Five Star Chapter Development Plan serves as a blueprint for developing strong chapters, improves student engagement on campus and recognizes progress in the attainment of goals set by the chapter.  Using the Five Star Plan as a guide, chapters enhance their strategies to recognize eligible students, provide significant personal and professional development opportunities for members through Honors in Action, and build a working relationship with the college administration by becoming active on campus and in the community. As chapters reach these milestones they progress through each level of the Five Star Plan, ultimately reaching the pinnacle Five Star Level.
