The Mu chapter on the NEO campus is very involved in both campus activities and off-campus events and was the first established outside of Missouri.

MIAMI - The Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) Mu Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society was named the Most Distinguished Chapter at the Oklahoma/Arkansas Regional Convention on March 10, 2018. The Mu Chapter was also recognized as a Five-Star Chapter, as they have for the past several years. Along with chapter recognitions, Mu Chapter Vice-President of Leadership, Clint Howard, was named one of the Top Five Chapter Officers for the region, and chapter member Stephanie Gilbert was named one of the Top Five Chapter Members.

There are 42 active chapters in the OK/AR Region of Phi Theta Kappa and the Mu Chapter consistently ranks in the upper echelon. This year, Mu Chapter also won Most Distinguished Honors-in-Action Project for their research into human trafficking and Top-Five College Projects for their work on campus safety issues. Mu was also designated a Reach Rewards chapter for exceeding the international standard in membership acceptance.

The Mu chapter on the NEO campus is very involved in both campus activities and off-campus events and was the first established outside of Missouri. Currently the second oldest operating chapter in the United States, students must complete at least 12 hours of courses and maintain a 3.5 grade point average to gain admittance into the society. Through their membership in PTK, students will have access to scholarships and service opportunities.

Mu Chapter now prepares to attend the International Convention in Kansas City, Missouri, in April. For more information about PTK, contact sponsors LaShawna Powers at lashawna.powers@neo.edu or Dr. Lesli Deichman at ldeichman@neo.edu.
