2003- All-Kansas Academic Team
Candice R. Dickinson of Arkansas City and Harold M. Bos III of Cambridge will represent the college on the 2003 All-Kansas Academic Team. Dickinson, a math major, and Bos, a pre-pharmacy major, will be among 37 community college scholars who will be honored Feb. 19 during the Eighth Annual Phi Theta Kappa Honors Luncheon at the Holiday Inn West/Holidome in Topeka. The luncheon is being held in conjunction with the Kansas Board of Regents monthly meeting.
Dickinson, 20, is a sophomore who graduated from Hays High School. Bos, 19, is a sophomore who graduated from Central of Burden High School.
The 2003 All-Kansas Academic Team is sponsored by the international headquarters of PTK international honor society, the Kansas Association of Community College Trustees, and the Kansas Council of Community College Presidents. The group of men and women will be recognized in an annual award ceremony that also draws educators and lawmakers each year. “We consider this a very worthwhile endeavor for all of the Kansas community colleges to come together and celebrate the achievements of the state’s outstanding students,” said Thomas Percy, a Hutchinson Community College history instructor who serves as Kansas Region Coordinator for the honor society. “These students are our finest, not only in the academic sphere, but also in terms of service and citizenship.”
Each scholar was selected by his or her own community college for the eighth annual statewide academic team, and each scholar also is a nominee for the 2003 All-USA Academic Team, sponsored by the newspaper USA Today, PTK and the American Association of Community Colleges. Two students are chosen each year to represent the college on the team.
