The N.C. Governor has proclaimed April as North Carolina Community College Excellence in Education Month. Students from all 58 community colleges are receiving awards for academic excellence.
“The students receiving these awards have much to celebrate,” says N.C. Community College System President, Dr. Scott Ralls. “Whether they’re training for careers in healthcare, welding or other technical fields, or planning to transfer to a university, they are taking the next step toward reaching their goals and defining their own success.”
One student from each of the 58 community colleges received Academic Excellence Awards (AEA). AEA selection requirements are consistent with Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society criteria:
- Must be currently enrolled,
- Must have completed at least 12 semester hours in an associate degree program, and
- Must have a cumulative grade point average of no less than 3.25.
CPCC’s award recipient was Anza Abbas. Anza will receive a plaque and medallion in recognition of this accomplishment.
