academic dean, in congratulating the 70 new student inductees. 
In recognition of their academic excellence, leadership, fellowship, and service, 70 Middlesex Community College students were inducted into the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society during a ceremony held at the College on April 22.  As new members of the award-winning Beta Gamma Xi Chapter, these students are now part of the largest international honor society for two-year colleges.

Phi Theta Kappa has been an active part of the MxCC community for more than 20 years.  During this past academic year, student members participated in the state-wide Community College Completion Corps event and completed the Honor in Action Project on “The Cresting Point,” a documentary film about the feasibility of solar power use on a college campus.  They also attended regional and international conferences, and held fundraising events for the MxCC Foundation’s scholarship program.

This year, under the direction of co-advisors Dr. Lin Lin, Dr. Eva Jones and Ms. Landi Hou, MxCC’s chapter earned the highest Five Star Level Chapter designation for the first time – recognizing the chapter’s high level of regional and national engagement.  The chapter also received the Honors in Action Distinguished Theme Award, and Connecticut C4 Participation Recognition.  Co-Advisor Dr. Lin received the New England Region Horizon Award.
