Tau Alpha Pi Inducts New Members

May 24, 2017

Eight new members were recently inducted into the Tau Alpha Pi National Honor Society at Piedmont Technical College. Tau Alpha Pi is the national honor society for engineering technology, just as Phi Beta Kappa is for liberal arts and Tau Beta Pi is for engineering. Founded in 1953 and managed for more than 30 years by engineering technology educator Frederick J. Berger, Tau Alpha Pi is open to both associate-degree and baccalaureate candidates.

Inductees were Corey Boyter, electronic engineering technology (EET) student from Donalds; Bryce Brazel, EET student from Ninety Six; Jeremy Catoe, mechanical engineering technology (MET) student from Greenwood; Jeremiah Kohl, EET student from Greenwood; Heaven Lee, MET student from Greenwood; Nicholas Manley, MET student from Abbeville; Lucky Maroney, EET student from Waterloo; and Jose J. Sanchez Martinez, MET student from Batesburg.

Tau Alpha Pi is open by invitation only to the top four percent of an institution’s total engineering technology enrollment. Piedmont Tech’s Eta chapter began in 1995 and is one of only three chapters in the state.
