LYNCHBURG, TN (Feb. 19. 2016) – Motlow State Community College recently nominated two outstanding students, Jacqueline Bumbalough, from Sparta, and Lucas Patterson, from McMinnville, as members of the 2016 All-Tennessee Academic Team.
The 13 community colleges across the state recognized 26 outstanding students at the 2016 All-Tennessee Academic Team luncheon in Nashville with college presidents and state legislators.
The honorees, all members of Phi Theta Kappa honor society, were awarded with special medallions and legislative declarations to recognize their leadership, academic accomplishments and service to their communities.
Phi Theta Kappa, community college presidents, and community college state associations sponsor All-State Community College Academic Team ceremonies in 38 participating states. Phi Theta Kappa is an honors society at two-year institutions across the world.
Students from the 38 participating states nominated to the All-USA Community College Academic Team are automatically named to the All-State Community College Academic Teams. Ranking on the All-State Community College Academic Team is generally determined by the student's score in the national competition.
Following the luncheon, the honorees toured the state capital and had their photo taken with Governor Haslam.
