Cowley College students Tiffany Hutchinson, Alyssa Showman, and Shaye Waple were recently selected as members of the All Kansas Academic Team and were honored at a luncheon in Topeka last Thursday.
Hutchinson and Showman attend Cowley’s Arkansas City campus, while Waple is a student at Cowley’s Southside Education Center.
Kansas is among a growing number of states participating in the State Academic Teams pilot project. The State Academic Teams were introduced in 1994 as a way to provide scholastic recognition to Phi Theta Kappa members, while promoting excellence at two-year colleges.
The State Academic Teams are a division of the Academic All-American Team for Community, Technical and Junior College Students, an international program sponsored annually by Phi Theta Kappa, USA TODAY and the American Association of Community Colleges.
Last year, more than 800 of the country's finest community college students competed for recognition, spots on the national team and cash stipends. The Kansas All-State Academic Team is designed to provide the same kind of recognition to our state's two-year college scholars by saluting their academic achievement, leadership and service.
