Miramar College scholars Randall Dexter and Thaimae Le celebrate their recognition as All-California team members.
The San Diego Community College District is honored to have students from San Diego City, Mesa, and Miramar colleges as part of the 2016 All-California Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Team. These six students, along with others, will be recognized as outstanding scholars at the Community College League of California's awards luncheon in Sacramento on March 24.
Issanna Loughman, California’s
“New Century Scholar.”
Additionally, for the third consecutive year the SDCCD has had a student named as a New Century Scholar, a designation given to the student receiving the highest application score in the state. This year Issanna Loughman of City College has the honor. She will receive a $2,000 scholarship and represent California at the annual Presidents Breakfast at the American Association of Community Colleges Convention.
Phi Theta Kappa recognizes academic achievement and provides opportunities for highly successful students at community colleges to participate in honors, leadership, and service activities for the community. Each California community college may nominate two students based on outstanding academic performance and service to the college and community. All-State Team members will be honored at the annual luncheon with special recognition including medallions, certificates and when available, stipends and scholarships.
