ELLISVILLE – Two-hundred-and-thirteen Jones County Junior College students were recently inducted into the international honor society for two-year colleges, Phi Theta Kappa. These students are enrolled in 15 credit hours of classes and have maintained a 3.5 GPA, and will have to continue to meet academic standards to remain a member in good standing.  Being a member of PTK also provides scholarship opportunities for senior college and opportunities for campus and community service, like this year’s voter registration and campus blood drives. 
Before being inducted in the prestigious organization, keynote speaker and VP of Advancement and Executive Director of the JCJC Foundation Inc., Charlie Garretson encouraged students to be leaders in their communities.  He shared everyone can be a leader in their community by actively supporting events and children’s activities; you don’t have to be an executive of a bank or the president of a company to be a leader. Garretson said, “stay-at-home-moms” are leaders too.
