Each year, students are selected for All-Missouri Academic Team by the Phi Theta Kappa honor society. East Central College is proud to announce three students made the list in 2017!
Taylor Schaefer and Conner Camden were named to the All-Missouri Silver list, and Megan Hanneken was named to the All-Missouri Bronze list.
“East Central College is very proud of our All-Missouri Academic Team recipients,” said President Dr. Jon Bauer. “Our Phi Theta Kappa chapter is a very important part of campus culture.”
Members of the All-Missouri Academic Team are selected based on the extent to which they meet the definition of the word “scholar,” which Phi Theta Kappa defines as “one who excels in the classroom, has the intellectual curiosity to pursue an academic career and cultural enrichment outside the traditional classroom, shows evidence of substantial development of talents in academics and technical education and has demonstrated an ability to share this development with others.
Students from each of Missouri’s 27 Phi Theta Kappa chapters apply to be on the All-Missouri Academic Team. Only 40 students are selected each year. The students will be recognized at a Missouri Community College Association luncheon on April 12 in Columbia, MO.
Phi Theta Kappa is the officially recognized honor society for two-year colleges on a national level.
