POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) - Three Rivers College student Rebekah Hill was named Second Team All-Missouri and TRC student Joshua Webb was named Third Team All-Missouri by the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society as part of its annual All-Missouri Academic Team.
Students are selected based on the extent to which they meet the definition of the word “scholar,” which Phi Theta Kappa defines as “one who excels in the classroom, has the intellectual curiosity to pursue an academic career and cultural enrichment outside the traditional classroom, shows evidence of substantial development of talents in academics and technical education, and has demonstrated an ability to share this development with others.”
Students from each of Missouri’s 25 Phi Theta Kappa chapters apply to be on the All-Missouri Academic Team.
Only 42 students were selected this year. The students were recently recognized at a Missouri Community College Association luncheon in Columbia, Missouri.
Each student received a cash scholarship and a medallion from MCCA. Phi Theta Kappa is the officially recognized honor society for two-year colleges on a national level.
