Two Minneapolis Community and Technical College students were named to the All-State Community College Academic Team this month. The All-State Academic Team is an opportunity to recognize two-year college students for their leadership, academic achievements and community college service. Zamzam Yusuf and Sara Osman, Liberal Arts students, joined a handful of students from other Minnesota community colleges at the recent recognition ceremony of academic success and community service.
The All-State Academic Team was introduced 20 years ago to honor and recognize two-year college students for their leadership, academic achievements and community college service. These teams offer scholarships and scholastic recognition to Phi Theta Kappa members. Minnesota’s public community and technical college are proud to be a part of a tradition that showcases the high achievements of students who are committed to success in the classroom and service to their communities. By recognizing these students, Minnesota demonstrates a commitment to scholarship and community service as essential objectives in the state’s public community and technical colleges.
Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society for two-year colleges, symbolizes excellence in higher education and a commitment to students. It has recognized and encouraged scholarship among two-year college students for more than 80 years, providing stimulation and enrichment while promoting the academic integrity of the associate degree program. For these reasons, the American Association of Community Colleges has designated Phi Theta Kappa the official honor society for two-year colleges.
