LCC Honors Two PTK Students
February 5, 2016
Parsons, KS- Labette Community College has named Adele Bohn and Kendall Elliott to the All Kanas Academic Team for 2016. The two Tau Theta Members of Phi Theta Kappa will be honored during a luncheon in Topeka on Thursday, February 11.
Kansas is one of 38 states participating in the All-State Academic Team program. 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 All-USA Community College Academic Team, presented by USA TODAY, and sponsored by Phi Theta Kappa and Follett Higher Education Group. The country’s finest community college students competed for recognition, spots on the national team and scholarships. 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.
Adele Bohn is a dietetics major with a 4.0 grade point average. At Labette Community College, Bohn has been an active member of Phi Theta Kappa, helping with several service projects. In addition, she has been named to the Who’s Who in American Universities and Colleges. She is also an active community volunteer and has been named to the President’s List. Bohn plans to transfer to Kansas State University.
Kendall Elliott is a psychology major with a 4.0 grade point average. While attending Labette Community College, Elliott has been active as a member Phi Theta Kappa and the Cardinal Christian Fellowship. She was named Who’s Who in American Universities and Colleges. In addition, she has continued as a community volunteer and named to the President’s List.
Bohn and Elliott will be honored with a medal, certificate and a $300 stipend. Being named to the All-Kansas Academic Team guarantees them a minimum of a $1000 scholarship at one of the six Regents University, Washburn University, and several private colleges in Kansas. Phi Theta Kappa is the national honor society of the two-year college. Students must have at least a 3.5GPA or better to be accepted to the organization. The purpose of Phi Theta Kappa is the promotion of scholarship, the development of leadership and service, and the cultivation of fellowship among qualified students.
