The All-New York Academic Team for Community Colleges recognizes students enrolled in community, technical and junior colleges for a combination of academic achievement, leadership and service to their colleges and communities. To be selected, students must maintain a 3.25 or higher grade point average and pursue volunteer service and cultural enrichment outside the classroom. Phi Theta Kappa is the national honor society for two-year colleges.
SUNY Chancellor King honored the students at an April 19 luncheon at State University Plaza in Albany, hosted by the New York Community College Trustees, the Association of Presidents of Public Community Colleges and the Faculty Council of Community Colleges. “The Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society is reserved for the best of the best in community, technical and junior colleges,” King said. “I am delighted to honor these students who deserve all the recognition they are receiving today.”
