Lone Star College-Montgomery student Savannah Martin has been named to the prestigious All-USA Community College Academic Team for which she has received a $5,000 scholarship.
Martin is one of 20 community college students to be named to the academic team by the Follett Higher Education Group. She will be honored during a Phi Theta Kappa President’s breakfast during the American Association of Community Colleges Convention (AACC) this month.
“Savannah represents the caliber of students at LSC-Montgomery and her dedication to scholarship and excellence reflects the ideals of Phi Theta Kappa,” LSC-Montgomery’s dean of academic support and Phi Theta Kappa adviser Sarah Palacios-Wilhelm said. “As advisers for the Beta Delta lota Chapter, Melissa (Hesselmeyer) and I are very happy to see her hard work and achievements celebrated.”
The AACC will host its convention in New Orleans on April 24, where Martin will be presented a commemorative medallion and scholarship funds. Lone Star-Montgomery’s president Dr. Rebecca Riley will also be honored during the convention for her leadership.
The All-USA team serves as an academic honor for community college students who are nominated by their school for intellectual, academic, leadership and civics strengths.
