MOSES LAKE — The Big Bend Community College chapter of Phi Theta Kappa recently inducted 23 new members in the college’s winter induction ceremony.

Phi Theta Kappa is the international honor society for community colleges.

The Rho Zeta chapter at BBCC celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2017, receiving its charter Nov. 17, 1967. To be eligible students must maintain a grade point average of at least 3.5 and have a recommendation from a faculty member. Students must be enrolled for at least 15 academic hours during the current semester, and must have completed at least 15 semester hours.

Inductees took the membership oath, and the evening featured guest speaker Jeremy Seda, the college’s web and multimedia specialist and IT accessibility coordinator.

College president Terry Leas and honor society sponsor Barbara Whitney “then presented each new member with a white rose,” said Matthew Killebrew, BBCC director of communications.

Inductees were Caitlin Boss, Alicia Hess, Sierra Schutte, Killian King, Daniel Ochoa Valdez, Yuri Castaneda, Ezekyel Ochoa, Nancy Rakoz, Moises Medel, Kelli Ritter, Lucero Monico Olivarez, Deeanna Sandoval and Jana Osborne, all of Moses Lake. Others were Kimberly Grandos and Nathaniel Roylance, Quincy; Kaylee Sheriff and Nicole Douglas, Othello; Thomas Cline and Katelyn Julan, Ephrata; Daniel Loch of Coulee Dam, Carolina Martinez of Warden, Dagney Ahrend of Soap Lake and Samuel Clarke of Puyallup.
