Fall 2008 Induction Ceremony
The evening of enchantment that we know as PTK induction began by a welcome from Skyline’s president, which was then followed with a word of by the Regional president. The excitement coursing through the room was tangible at that point. The secrecy maintained by previously inducted members about the ceremony only heightened the anticipation in our hearts and souls. Our satisfaction would not be met just then, for the keynote speaker was about to take the stage in grand fashion. The speaker was none other than Tyler Hammer, Executive Director of Sustainable San Mateo County. A finer speech about sustainability in connection with academic achievement has never before been crafted. After in-depth definitions and explanations of the word ‘sustainability,’ the speech concluded. The new inductees were initiated into our organization that we love so dearly, Phi Theta Kappa. After the ceremony was complete, the emotionally exhausted new members swore the oath of PTK. We then were released to the foyer for punch and pie!
