The Jefferson Davis Community College chapter of Phi Theta Kappa tapped eight new members at its fall semester induction ceremony held in the Neal Center Auditorium on the Brewton campus.
The inductees into the international academic honor society for two-year college students achieved a grade point average of 3.5 or higher in academic transfer classes.
Alecia Curtis Glaize, executive director for the Greater Brewton Habitat for Humanity, was the guest speaker at the ceremony.
Glaize spoke on the 2008 Phi Theta Kappa International Honors Study topic, The Paradox of Affluence: Choices, Challenges, and Conse-quences and the International Service Project, Operation Green, as it relates to the purpose and mission of Habitat for Humanity.
She challenged the inductees to make sound decisions even in the face of great challenges when pursuing worthwhile academic, career and life goals, and to always consider the consequences of choices.
Chapter President Allen Bell and chapter Vice President Jonathan Mize led the induction ceremony for the new members. Faculty advisors for the chapter are Loletta Redmon and Dr. Dan Wagner.
The group is an organization for students who meet certain criteria while attending Jefferson Davis Community College.
