18 Ag Institute Students Inducted Into Delta Tau Alpha Honor Society
On September 25, 2023, another class of Agricultural Institute students was inducted into the Delta Tau Alpha Honor Society, advised by ARE Senior Lecturer Jonathan Phillips. Delta Tau Alpha, a national agricultural honor society, promotes academic scholarship and public service in the community. Second-year students with a GPA above 3.0 are invited to join the organization.
Eighteen new members, with their friends and family, gathered in the Tally Student Center for the induction ceremony. Current DTA members led the induction, discussing the characteristics members should strive to possess.
Ag Institute Director Lee Ivy provided remarks before students received their DTA medallions. Archie Griffin, an NC State Alumnus who owns and operates Griffin Farms and Griffin’s Farm Market in Washington, North Carolina, gave the evening’s keynote address. Griffin provided words of wisdom to the new members and advised them to take business courses.
Congratulations to the new members of Delta Tau Alpha!
