NCC Inducts Honor Society Members
Nash Community College’s Gamma Beta Phi Chapter recently inducted its new members. Gamma Beta Phi is a non-profit, co-educational, honor and service organization for students in colleges and universities. Its objectives are to recognize and encourage excellence in education, to promote the development of leadership ability and character, and to foster, disseminate, and improve education through appropriate service projects. To be eligible for Gamma Beta Phi, students must hold a 3.0 or higher cumulative grade point average and must have earned 12 or more semester hours in a major at Nash Community College.
Nationally, Gamma Beta Phi has approximately 40,000 active student members in its comprised chapters. 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. Residents look forward to seeing the students during each visit, and the students enjoy helping others through this and other service projects.
