Eleven new members were inducted into the Gamma Beta Phi honor society during a ceremony held at their recent chapter meeting. Nationally, Gamma Beta Phi has approximately 40,000 active student members in its comprised chapters. Nash Community College chapter members must maintain a 3.0 or higher cumulative GPA and have completed 12 or more semester hours of college level work towards a degree. Each year, the NCC Gamma Beta Phi chapter sponsors an adopt-a-grandparent program for the residents of Trinity Retirement Villas in Nashville, where members visit several times throughout the year. At the holidays, the group provides gifts for each resident fulfilling their wish lists as much as possible. NCC’s Gamma Beta Phi members have worked with Trinity Villas for more than 15 years. Residents look forward to seeing the students during each visit, and the students enjoy helping others through this and other service projects.
