Cloud County Community College Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society honored two students during the Annual All-Kansas Academic Team Virtual Ceremony on March 3.

 

Upsilon Tau, Cloud County’s chapter of the society honored members Jose Luna Jr. and Jaycee Burghart with a medal during the ceremony. The All-Kansas Academic Team honor also guarantees both Luna and Burghart a minimum of a $1,000 scholarship to be applied toward their education at one of the six Regents Universities, Washburn University, or one of several private colleges in Kansas.

 

Fifty students were named to the All-Kansas Academic Team for community colleges. Students from Kansas two-year colleges have been named to this year’s team in recognition of academic achievement, leadership, and community service. Students were nominated by their respective college, and are now eligible for the All-USA Academic Team.

 

Luna Jr. is a sophomore at Cloud County from Fort Worth, Texas, and majoring in mechanical engineering. He is a member of the Cloud baseball team, and is also a tutor in the Student Success Center. He is unsure where he will transfer next year, but hopes to play baseball at the next level.

 

Burghart is a sophomore from McPherson, majoring in biology/pre-physician’s assistant professional health. She is a member of the T-Bird volleyball team, and is has not made a decision as to where she will transfer after graduating from Cloud this spring.
