|South Carolina's 2010 Phi Theta Kappa
All-state Academic Team
SC Technical College System honors Phi Theta Kappa
All-State Academic Team Members
COLUMBIA (March 16, 2010) – The SC Technical College System recognized 18 students enrolled at colleges within the South Carolina Technical College System who have been named to the Phi Theta Kappa South Carolina All-State Academic Team at a ceremony at the State House on Tuesday, March 16, 2010.
The students named to the South Carolina All-State Academic Team were selected by the Technical College presidents on the basis of academic performance, leadership accomplishments, and service to their Colleges and to their local communities. In addition, these students will participate in the annual All-USA Academic Team competition in April 2010, sponsored by the American Association of Community Colleges and Phi Theta Kappa, the International Honor Society of the Two-Year College.
These students join an elite group. Less than one percent of America's six million two-year college students have distinguished themselves with this superior level of academic achievement and service to their colleges and communities.
“These students have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement and impressive records of service to their colleges and communities,” said SC Technical College System President Dr. Barry Russell. “They are the best and brightest that our state’s Technical Colleges have to offer, and I congratulate them on their many accomplishments.”
