LWTech Academic Honor Society


The LWTech Beta Iota Tau chapter of the national Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) academic honor society that recognizes and encourages scholarship among two-year college students.

Our chapter provides opportunities for the development of leadership and service, for an intellectual climate for exchange of ideas and ideals, for lively fellowship for scholars, and for stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence.

Joining the Beta Iota Tau chapter of PTK allows students access to scholarships that may help them complete their educational goals.
