CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – John Tyler, which is becoming Brightpoint, Community College proudly welcomed more than 110 new members to the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society for the 2021-2022 academic year. The students were honored during an induction ceremony held at the College’s Chester Campus on April 25, 2022. At the ceremony, the college’s Phi Theta Kappa inductees from the 2020-21 and 2019-20 academic years, who were unable to enjoy an in-person induction ceremony, were also celebrated.

Phi Theta Kappa recognizes the academic achievements of community and junior college students. To be eligible for membership in the college’s Phi Theta Kappa chapters, students who have completed 15-45 credit hours need to have a minimum GPA of 3.65, be in an associate degree program, and be enrolled full time during the semester they become a member. Students who have completed more than 45 credits must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5, be in an associate degree program, and be enrolled full- or part-time at the college during the semester they become a member. Students who transferred to the college may use a maximum of 12 transfer credits to establish total semester credit eligibility. 

The college’s two Phi Theta Kappa chapters, Tau Rho and Beta Omicron Omicron, inducted the following new members (zip codes appear in parentheses):
