Phi Theta Kappa is an international honor society of two-year colleges. MAC’s chapter was founded in 1926 when the college still operated as Flat River Junior College out of the old Flat River High School building. It is the second oldest active chapter of PTK in Missouri. Its hallmarks are fellowship, service, leadership, and scholarship.
