PTK All-Kansas Academic
Amanda Hadicke of Arkansas City and Kassey VanGieson of Norwich will represent the college on the 2005 Phi Theta Kappa All-Kansas Academic Team. The team, comprised of students from all 19 Kansas community colleges, will be honored at a banquet in Topeka in February. Hadicke, 20, is a sophomore majoring in biology. VanGieson, 20, is a sophomore majoring in pre-veterinary medicine.
Students are chosen after meeting specific criteria, including the degree of academic classes taken, campus involvement, a 4.0 grade-point average, and writing several essays. A recommendation from a faculty member also was to be considered for this honor.
One of the benefits of membership in PTK, the national honor society for two-year colleges, is scholarship money. Traditionally, Kansas Board of Regents universities and Washburn have awarded scholarships in the amount of $1,000 to All-Kansas Team recipients who transfer to their institutions.
