Roane State Community College’s Georgette Boozer and Marcus Wise were among of the state’s highest-achieving college students recently celebrated at a special ceremony in Nashville.
Representing Tennessee’s 13 Community Colleges, the outstanding students were named to the 2014 All-Tennessee Academic Team.
Each student, many accompanied by their state senators and representatives, were recognized and presented with a medallion during the luncheon starting at noon at the Doubletree Downtown Hotel in Nashville.
This year’s 26 honorees include students pursuing a variety of degrees and careers, including aerospace engineering, nursing, law, chemistry, communications and business.
Most intend to transfer to four-year universities to continue their educations.
The All-Tennessee Academic Team is comprised of students nominated by their colleges to be considered for the All-USA Academic Team, sponsored by USA Today and Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society.
Each of the state’s 13 community colleges selects two outstanding students to recognize for their academic achievement, leadership and service to the community.
Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education, with more than 2 million members and 1,200 chapters in the U.S. and beyond.
