About the Emblem
This is the emblem of Phi Theta Kappa. It consists of a golden slab, keyed at the top and bottom. The golden field, like the escutcheon of our coat of arms, refers to the golden opportunities that abound on every hand for society to evidence their culture and perform good works. Since gold is the most noble of metals, it shall have a further significance to our society, for it shall represent that nobility attained by those who achieve intellectual leadership.
The emblem of this Society shall be a golden slab.
The center of the slab is a black band upon which three Greek letters appear, Phi - Theta - Kappa. These letters symbolize the Greek words for wisdom, aspiration, and purity. The wreath of oak leaves denotes stability and strength of character, and the curling leaves of laurel signify achievement and success.
Above the band is a representation of the head of Athena, Goddess of Learning. In the base appear the mystic Greek letters meaning light, the light of learning and knowledge.
This space is designated for members of the Alpha Lambda Phi Chapter, who have done either independent research for their courses, or have written articles connected to furthering their education.
This month, read about Patrick Ezeadikwa, a JJC student graduating this Spring. He has written a piece on his research dealing with Mesothelioma.
