The organization focuses on four main pillars of excellence: scholarship, leadership, fellowship and service.
Students receiving an invitation must have a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and have completed at least 12 credit hours of college coursework.
Students participate in community service projects each semester which range from hosting food drives, to assisting the Carrollton Main Street Program in stuffing Easter eggs for its annual Easter on the Square Event in April.
JCTC Phi Theta Kappa inductees were Marty Clark, Amanda Ellis, Tammy Hawkins, Karen Magee and Pam Yeary.
Ken Massey was selected as February's student of the month. Massey is a lifelong learner. He is continuing his education at the age of 85 through the Donovan Scholar program. Massey is a former teacher with Carroll County Schools. He has been an active member of the Geology Club.
Eddie Clark was selected as the March's student of the month.
Clark actively participates in student clubs and consistently engages students, faculty and staff in conversation.
He has repeatedly stepped up to help with events and activities when no one else was willing.
